      Ex-girlfriend accused of torching holiday yard decoration

      A holiday yard decoration was the target of arson on Friday in Mason County and a suspect is behind bars.

      The arson happened in Free Soil Township and Michigan State Police Troopers arrested the victim's ex-girlfriend Saturday.

      Troopers say 43-year-old Kerri Mackey, of Manistee County, was arrested for aggravated stalking and arson of personal property.

      Mackey was reportedly on probation for stalking during the time of the arson.

      She was charged with a felony of aggravated stalking and a misdemeanor arson charge.

      She was taken to the Mason County Jail and is being held on a $7,500 bond.

      Mackey is scheduled to be back in court on November 13.
