An Aberdeen man who lit a pillow on fire while a woman was sleeping on it has been sentenced to serve three years in prison.
23-year-old Taylor Hardies pleaded guilty to felony reckless burning and admitted breaking probation rules. He must serve at least one-fourth of his sentence before being eligible for parole.
Authorities say Hardies and the woman had dated. The woman threw the burning pillow out a window and was not hurt in the October 2013 incident.
