Not good help

A DOMESTIC helper was sentenced to seven years' prison for setting fire to her employers' home and stealing their property, the Minhang District People's Court ruled yesterday.

Ding Hailan, a Gansu Province native, was hired in October last year by a local couple, who soon bought an insurance for her. The domestic helper, who received little education, thought the couple wanted to claim an insurance payment by hurting her so she stole more than 13,000 yuan (US$1,902) of their property and set fire to the house before leaving.
