FORT WORTH (AP) - A North Texas felon has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for torching his estranged wife’s car.

A judge in Fort Worth sentenced Roy Robertson Mallard Jr. Jurors earlier convicted the Fort Worth man of arson in the September 2010 incident.

Prosecutors say Mallard had left threatening voice mails for his former spouse before her empty vehicle was set on fire. Nobody was hurt.

Investigators say Mallard, who was sentenced Wednesday, splashed the car with gasoline before starting the blaze.

Records show Mallard had prior convictions for robbery and drug-related offenses.
