A judge has sentenced an Evansville man to 200 years in prison after he was found guilty but mentally ill on three counts of murder for starting a fire that killed a former girlfriend, her daughter and her grandfather.

Christopher Compton was sentenced Monday in the 2014 deaths of 28-year-old Keri Jones, 3-year-old Jazmine Jones, and 76-year-old Donald Lankford in the man’s apartment. The fire in the building’s entryway blocked the stairs leading from the second-story apartment.
