MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - One of the suspects in a Vermont fire that killed one person and seriously injured another has been freed from jail.

The Times Argus reports a judge ordered 21-year-old Amanda Wilder, of Montpelier, to serve one year of federal supervised release for possession of a cocaine base.

Wilder was originally charged with two felony counts of making false statements and attempting to prevent communication to law enforcement about a federal crime.

Her charges were in relation to a fire at Northfield apartment in December 2015 that killed 22-year-old Brittany Burt and injured her boyfriend, 26-year-old Efren Serrano.

Authorities say Wilder and seven other suspects intended to rob Serrano of drugs and money. Prosecutors say three of the suspects doused Serrano and Burt with gasoline and lit them on fire.
