RICHMOND, Va. - A homeless woman convicted of setting a fire in Richmond that killed another woman has been sentenced to 29 years in prison.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch ( http://bit.ly/yTHLUI) reports 34-year-old Michelle Yvette Hampton was convicted and sentenced on murder and arson charges Wednesday in Richmond Circuit Court.
