Suspect in “Mrs. Doubtfire” Home Fire Pleads Guilty to Arson

A woman charged with setting fire to a house featured in the popular "Mrs. Doubtfire'' movie has pleaded guilty to arson. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to drop an attempted murder charge stemming from the Jan. 5 fire.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports Thursday that Tyqwon Eugenen Welch will be sentenced to one year in jail and five years of probation.

Prosecutors say the 25-year-old transgender woman is a disgruntled former patient of the plastic surgeon who lives in the house.

Welch said the doctor, a leading surgeon in facial feminization surgery for transgender patients, had botched her procedures.

The iconic "Mrs. Doubtfire'' house served as a temporary shrine to Bay Area actor Robin Williams, who starred in the 1993 movie, after he committed suicide in August.
