A woman accused of lighting two sets of fires to mobile homes on Farr Road in May pleaded guilty on Monday, authorities said.
Rebecca Betham, 22, pleaded guilty to four counts of first-degree arson and a count of theft by receiving stolen property. She was sentenced to two years in prison, followed by three years’ probation, the Muscogee County Superior Court Clerk’s Office said.
According to court records, Betham and 30-year-old Alonzo T. Perkins allegedly set fires to mobile homes on May 23 and May 28 at Park Crest Mobile Home Park, 988 Farr Road.
In the first set of fires on May 23, the suspects entered the trailers and used trash to start the fire.
