WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A man has been sentenced to 60 years in prison for a 2010 house fire that killed his girlfriend and two children.

Twenty-nine-year-old Travis Jones was convicted of three counts of reckless manslaughter in the deaths of 19-year-old Teyonna Watts, her 3-year-old daughter Breyonna and her 7-month-old daughter Jordan.

Jones was sentenced Friday in Superior Court in Wilmington. On Oct. 4, 2010, a fire broke out shortly after Jones left the house. The Wilmington News-Journal reports (https://delonline.us/1OLZXlk) that Jones told police he lit a cigarette that morning, using the stove, where the fire was said to have started.
