A southwest Idaho woman accused of setting fire to a mounted bison head at her ex-husband's home faces arson charges. Police arrested Ryann Jean Stafford, 26, Thursday on a charge of third-degree arson, a felony.

Investigators said Stafford and her former spouse got into an argument at his home. But after he left the house, police said Stafford began throwing objects and then used a lighter to ignite the mounted head.

Another person who lives at the home extinguished the fire.

A judge has set bond at $100,000, and Stafford is being held in the Ada County Jail.

The maximum penalty for third-degree arson is 10 years in prison.
