An Ohio woman set her husband ablaze following a domestic dispute on Sunday, May 23. The victim suffered serious burn injuries but reportedly survived the incident.

36-year-old Tiffany Hall, a resident of Colebrook Township, allegedly doused her husband in gasoline and set him on fire following an argument over cell phone usage.

Deputies from the Ashtabula County Sheriff's Office, responded to the home at the 6900 block of Parks Roads on Sunday afternoon after a neighbor called 911 and reported the incident.

Responding officers located the 62-year-old victim, who told them that his wife threw a can of gasoline at him and set him on fire, Ashtabula County Sheriff William Niemi said, the Metro reported.

The man survived the encounter and ran to a neighbor’s home where they doused him with a garden hose and assisted him until medics arrived.

Firefighters from Windsor Township responded to the home and provided medical care to the victim. Representatives of the Dorset Fire Department set up a landing zone for a helicopter at the old Colebrook school, said DFD Chief Shane Gregory.

The victim was flown to the Akron Children's Hospital’s burn unit. He was reported to be in stable condition.

The suspect had fled the scene before deputies arrived. She stole a vehicle from the neighborhood and turned up on State Route 11 in Plymouth Township, however, she was later arrested without incident, deputies said.

Hall was charged with aggravated arson and felonious assault on Tuesday morning. She made her initial appearance before Eastern County Court Judge Harold Specht on the same day, according to court records.

She is being held at the Ashtabula County Jail at a $100,000 bond. She would have to undergo a mental health evaluation before getting released, the judge ordered. She would also have to adhere to a no-contact order with her husband.

In a similar incident, a 34-year-old man from the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh shot and killed his wife after she refused to have sex with him.

In a fit of rage, the man also murdered his three minor children by throwing them into a canal. Their bodies have not been discovered yet.
