HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. (AP) - A judge has ordered a Detroit woman to decades behind bars for setting a fire in a Highland Park apartment building, from which a 64-year-old man jumped to his death four years ago.

Wayne County prosecutors say Reneco Graus was sentenced Wednesday to at least 25 years in prison. She was convicted of second-degree murder, three counts of assault with intent to do great bodily harm and arson of a dwelling.

Authorities say Graus torched the apartments in the Detroit enclave on May 16, 2010. Prosecutors say Raymond Jordan jumped from the fourth floor after firefighters couldn’t reach him.

At least 120 people lived in the 56-unit building.
