A Camden County, N.J., woman was in police custody Saturday charged with setting her boyfriend on fire on New Year’s Eve.
Richard King Jr. was in stable condition in a Philadelphia burn center after a blanket he was using was set on fire, local newspaper the Courier-Post reported.
Police in Audubon, Pa., said Pamela Rozzelle, 50, was charged with second-degree aggravated arson and second-degree aggravated assault.
Rozzelle told police she could not find her car keys and tried to wake King, who was asleep on a couch. Rozzelle said she then lit a cigarette and a match fell onto a blanket that covered King, which in turn lit on fire, according to the report.
