RENTON, Wash. - A man who was badly burned after his wife allegedly set him on fire is now facing sex crime charges involving his 7-year-old stepdaughter.
Police in Washington state said Tatanysha Hedman, 40, doused her sleeping husband in gasoline before setting him on fire.
Hedman, 40, was arrested and told police she set her husband, Vincent Phillips, 52, on fire because he hurt her 7-year-old daughter, who is his stepdaughter. She said she did it because shooting him "was too nice," KOMO reported.
Phillips is hospitalized and faces first-degree child molestation charges.
Hedman remains in jail, facing assault and arson charges.
