DETROIT (AP) - A woman convicted in the firebombing of a house on Detroit’s east side that killed a man and a woman has been sentenced to life in prison.

The no-parole sentence was ordered Friday for Mariah Thomas, who was found guilty of felony murder, assault with intent to murder and arson in connection with the December attack.

The 24-year-old Detroit resident had been charged along with 28-year-old Jebrie Cross, who awaits trial.

The ex-boyfriend, 23-year-old James Jordan, died along with 20-year-old Jana John. A 22-year-old man was injured.

Authorities say it was an act of revenge following rejection.
