Valdosta - A New Orleans woman gets four life sentences in an arson-murder case in Valdosta.
38-year-old Cynthia Allen pleaded guilty to the four counts of murder June 1st and received four concurrent life sentences.
Investigators say in October of 2005, Allen set fire to a home on Troupe Street in Valdosta with nine people asleep inside.
Rescuers were able to pull five of them from the burning home, but the other four were killed in the blaze.
According to District Attorney David Miller, Allen initially faced the death penalty, but that was waived when her mental state was questioned, allowing her to enter the guilty pleas.
She is being held at the Lowndes County Jail and will be transferred to the state prison system later this month.
