A northwestern Pennsylvania woman will spend 10 years on probation for attempting suicide by setting fire to her home with a foreclosure notice.
The Erie Times-News (http://bit.ly/ILGnl0) reports Monday that Erie County Judge John Garhart opted not to imprison 48-year-old Eve Shreve, saying her actions were "entirely due to a mental health matter that overwhelms her like a wave." She had pleaded guilty in March to arson and reckless endangerment charges.
Police say Shreve's estranged husband told officers his wife acknowledged setting the fire to her home in Corry on March 18, 2011.
Crews rescued Shreve and her son after finding her unresponsive from sleeping pills and also determined that she had cut her wrist.
She had faced up to 22 years in prison before Monday's sentencing.
