KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) _ A man who admitted starting a fire at a Kearney woman’s apartment has been sent to prison.

Court records say 31-year-old Clifford Sellers was sentenced Friday in Buffalo County District Court to two to eight years. He’d pleaded guilty to arson after prosecutors dropped a burglary charge. No one was injured in the Jan. 22 blaze.

A state psychiatric evaluation recommended that Sellers receive mental health treatment in prison.
