A Wrexham man has been jailed for seven-and-a-half years after a court heard he threatened to burn down his former partner's home.
Barry Ian Turnbull, 45, had earlier sent her a sympathy card with a photograph of the five Philpott children, who were killed in a Derby house fire last year.
Days later he set fire to a bin outside her home, which damaged windows and plastic pipes while the family were asleep in their beds.
Turnbull admitted arson with recklessness as to whether life would be endangered; putting his ex-partner in fear that violence would be used against her; and threatening to destroy property.
He was cleared of a more serious charge of arson with intent to endanger life.
Judge Rhys Rowlands, sitting at Mold Crown Court, described sending the sympathy card - on which Turnbull wrote 'RIP' - as 'beneath contempt'.
He said: “All right-thinking people would view that as nothing short of wicked."
On starting the fire, the judge told Turnbull: “You showed no concern at all for those inside the house. You left, no doubt feeling very pleased with yourself at the time.”

We need to make sure that people have access to the right information, at the right time and in the right place. Those affected by flooding will now be thinking about the future and they will have a lot of questions about health and welfare issues.
We feel it's vital that we get representatives from different agencies under the same roof, to act as a 'one-stop shop' for information.
We also want to know from people about their personal circumstances, things they are short of, things they need and other information that would assist us in helping people.
An information centre has been set up near Rhyl Fire Station offering advice to residents following yesterday's flooding.
There will be representatives from:
- Welfare rights
- Housing and Supporting People
- Council Tax
- Family Information Service
- Public Protection
- Trading Standards
- Environmental Health
- Red Cross
Residents can access the centre until 5pm tonight and over the weekend for advice on issues such as finance and insurance, health, electrical safety and how to clean up after a flood.
A Denbighshire County Council spokesperson said: "There were no further issues of flooding to report overnight. The high tide passed at around 12.30am without any further problems.
"All those people affected by flooding have been re-housed by the Council."
