SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – Police in San Bernardino have arrested a woman suspected of setting her boyfriend on fire after an argument.
Sgt. Gary Robertson says the couple retired to different rooms following the fight Saturday night.
The 43-year-old man says he fell asleep in the living room and awoke at about 7 a.m. with flames on his legs and chest.
His girlfriend was gone but officers arrested her about 12 hours. The Los Angeles Times reported Monday that 52-year-old Stacy Mahle faces charges including attempted arson, attempted murder and domestic violence.
Robertson says the man, whose identity is being withheld, was treated at a hospital for third-degree burns.
