Paul Woman Accused of Torching Ex’s Jeep Makes Deal
BURLEY, Idaho (AP) — A 19-year-old southern Idaho woman accused of setting her ex-boyfriend's Jeep on fire because she believed he had cheated on her has reached a plea agreement.
The Twin Falls Times-News reports that Myra Gutierrez of the small town of Paul has pleaded guilty to felony burglary. She had been charged in June with burglary and third-degree arson after she was accused of using lighter fluid to start the fire.
Court documents say Gutierrez caught her shirt on fire and suffered third-degree burns on her stomach. A sentencing hearing is set for Oct. 21.
