Bobbie Kugler Sentenced for Manslaughter
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A western New York woman has been sentenced to prison for setting the fire that killed four of her children.
Rochester media outlets report that 31-year-old Bobbie Kugler sobbed as she was sentenced Tuesday to from seven to 15 years in prison for assault, arson and manslaughter. She had pleaded guilty in December in Monroe County Court.
Kugler admitted setting fire to a picture of her ex-boyfriend and tossing it onto a dresser filled with combustible materials. She said she had drunk four or five 40-ounce bottles of malt liquor and downed a handful of sleeping pills before setting the fire.
The blaze in February killed 14-year-old Gage Reavey; 13-year-old Greg Kugler; 12-year-old Kandee Kugler; and 6-year-old Kaiden Kugler.
