According to police reports, Tatanysha Hedman, age 40, poured gasoline on her husband while he slept and then set him on fire. Vincent Phillips, age 52, allegedly sexually molested her 7-year-old daughter and Tatanysha took matters into her own hands.
Phillips somehow managed to save his life by running out of their apartment and entering a convenience store, screaming “I`m on fire!”. Tatanysha admitted everything to the police saying that shooting him would have been “too nice.”
They were both arrested, Phillips charged with first degree child molestation and Hedman for assault and arson charges.
Hedman`s state of mind is being questioned at the time she set her husband on fire, hoping it will result in a lenient sentence.
