ANCHORAGE - A woman who cooked up methamphetamine and caused a fire has received a 12-year prison sentence.
Susan Soss of Chugiak was arrested after the fire in 2005 at the home she was renting in Chugiak. Soss told detectives that she had been cooking methamphetamine for years and had taught others how to do it, according to Anchorage District Attorney Adrienne Bachman.
A jury last January found that Soss endangered the lives of other people and had a child under the age of 10 in her care when she was cooking the drug.
Judge John Suddock, who sentenced Soss on Friday, used those facts to increase her sentence.
