WARREN COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A Warren County judge sentenced 35-year-old Scottie Kincade to 65 years in prison for murder and arson in the death of 31-year-old Heather Smith.
Prosecutors said the victim, 31-year-old Heather Smith, had been in an on-and-off-again relationship with Kincade.
On Sept. 27, 2016, emergency crews were called to a house fire in Williamsport. After the flames were out, Smith’s body was discovered in the home.
Investigators believe she was still alive when Kincade allegedly set the fire. Smith died as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning and inhaling super-heated air.
