ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- An upstate New York woman charged with arson and manslaughter in connection with a fire that killed four of her children reportedly told investigators the blaze started when she set pictures of her boyfriend on fire inside her house.

The Democrat and Chronicle of Rochester reports Monday that 31-year-old Bobbie Kugler told police she tossed the burning photos on a dresser filled with combustible materials. The newspaper says the account is contained in a felony complaint charging Kugler with fourth-degree arson and four counts of second-degree manslaughter.

Kugler was arrested Friday and has pleaded not guilty. She's being held in Monroe County Jail on $300,000 bail. She's due in Rochester City Court on Wednesday.
