WEST LAFAYETTE — A 13-year-old Northwest Indiana girl has been sentenced to an Indiana Department of Correction juvenile facility after admitting to charges of attempted murder and arson.
The girl learned her punishment Tuesday for the Jan. 8 fire near West Lafayette.
A family was inside the home but escaped safely. Fire officials said the home was a total loss.
Police said the suspected motive was a dispute between the girl and and another girl who lived at the home. The two girls attend the same school and live near each other.
Under Indiana law, how long a sentenced juvenile serves behind bars is determined by the Department of Corrections, based on the youth's progress.
