A Charlotte County woman could spend the rest of her life in prison after being found guilty of arson and insurance fraud.

Prosecutors said now-72-year old Nancy Amieva purposely flooded her home and asked contractors to inflate the cost of repairs to her house following a small stovetop fire in her kitchen back in 2013.

She tried to claim more than $20,000 for repairs, replacement property, and additional living expenses.

She is set to be sentenced at the end of the month.
