Press Trust of India  |  Beijing 

A Chinese woman was sentenced to death today for setting an apartment on fire in which four members of a family were killed.

Mo Huanjing, a former nanny of the family of Lin Shengbin, was found guilty of arson.

Lin's wife and their three young children were killed in the incident last year, the Hangzhou Intermediate People's Court said in its verdict.

Mo started the fire using a lighter in the early morning after she searched the keyword "arson" online, according to the court.

Mo was also convicted of theft, state-run Xinhua agency reported.
