Lincoln County District Court records say Lucas Vollmer was sentenced Monday. He'd pleaded no contest to felony charges of arson and false imprisonment. Prosecutors dropped two related charges in return for Vollmer's pleas.

A court affidavit says the two had argued at the home on Dec. 16 last year, and he wouldn't let her leave. The affidavit says he nailed shut the front and back doors and then used a propane torch to set fire to carpet and a T-shirt. The affidavit says she put out the fires and fled to safety.

He was arrested later that day in Gothenburg.
