A judge has sentenced a Fulton woman to supervised probation after she started a fire inside of a grocery store.

According to court records, the judge sentenced Pamela J. Cordrey on Monday to five years of supervised probation. The Callaway County Prosecutor's Office charged her in June with arson. The charge against her was later dropped to felony first-degree attempted arson.

Cordrey could spend up to seven years in prison if she violates her probation.

The judge also ordered her to pay all court costs and nearly $20,790 in restitution before she's released from probation. Cordrey is scheduled to start making $350 payments each month starting in January.

Police arrested her after Cordrey started the fire in the basement of Moser's grocery store off of North Business 54 on June 16.

According to a press release, the fire caused "substantial damage" to the basement. Cordrey worked at the grocery store at the time of the fire.

The state fire marshal's office later determined the fire was intentionally started.
