PHOENIX -- A man accused of stalking residents of a Phoenix home and setting fire to a car has been sentenced to nearly nine years in prison.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 35-year-old Gregg Pfeifer also was sentenced Friday to lifetime probation.

Authorities say Pfeifer began stalking and harassing his ex-girlfriend and her family at their home in July.

The victims then filed a restraining order against Pfeifer.

Police say Pfeifer later harassed the victims through numerous phone calls, text messages, emails and driving by their home.

On Dec. 27, police say Pfeifer allegedly put a bottle of gasoline on the hood of the car of his ex-girlfriend's boyfriend. The car was parked a few feet from the family's house.

Police say Pfeifer was arrested on suspicion of arson, stalking and aggravated harassment.
