RENTON, Wash. – A Washington woman is accused of pouring gasoline on her husband and setting him on fire after he allegedly molested her 7-year-old daughter, police told KOMO.
Tatanysha Hedman, 40, allegedly poured gasoline on Vincent Phillips, 52, as he slept on July 17. Hedman then allegedly set Phillips on fire.
Phillips ran out of their apartment and stumbled into a convenience store screaming, “I’m on fire!”
Hedman told investigators she set her husband on fire because he hurt her daughter, who is Phillips’ stepdaughter. She also told officers shooting him “was too nice,” according to KOMO.
Phillips, who is in intensive care, has been charged with first-degree child molestation, according to KOMO.
Hedman was jailed on assault and arson charges.
