KNOXVILLE (News Sentinel) -

A Sevier County mother was found guilty Thursday in connection with an attempt to set her infant son on fire three years ago, officials said.

Becky Eury, 33, will be sentenced 9 a.m. Sept. 5 by Sevier County Circuit Court Judge Henry Rex Ogle.

Eury was found guilty of attempted aggravated child abuse, neglect or endangerment, felony reckless endangerment and setting fire to personal property. Assistant District Attorney General Tim Norris said Eury could be sentenced to eight to 12 years, either on probation or in prison.

"It will be up to the judge at the sentencing hearing," Norris said. "There's definitely in our court a restraining order preventing her from contact with her children up until sentencing. At sentencing, the judge can further restrain her."
