SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - The owner of the mountain cabin where rogue ex-Los Angeles police officer Christopher Dorner holed himself up during a deadly gun battle with deputies will be paid $200,000.

San Bernardino County and Palmdale resident Candace Martin and her son Eric Funnell agreed to the settlement in December.

A county spokesman tells the San Bernardino County Sun ( ) that the board of supervisors approved the agreement at a closed session meeting in February.

The cabin caught fire and was destroyed after deputies threw pyrotechnic tear gas canisters inside, trying to get Dorner out. He committed suicide.

Authorities say Dorner killed four people, including two law enforcement officers, in a weeklong rampage that ended in a standoff at the cabin.
