CLEARFIELD, Utah (AP) - Authorities say a woman with a history of arson-related crimes set fire to a Clearfield apartment belonging to a man she met online.

The Deseret News reports (https://bit.ly/1KFgSQr) that 26-year-old Krisa Harper was arrested and booked into Davis County Jail earlier this week.

She faces one count each of felony aggravated arson and burglary.

Clearfield police say Harper told police she started the March 18 fire to cover up her theft of jewelry, a safe and other items.

She was charged with two aggravated arson felonies in May for allegedly starting fires at her office building in Salt Lake City.



Harper also admitted at the time to blaming her son for an August 2014 fire she set in her home.

It was not known Saturday if Harper had an attorney.
