Shriya Biman Patel, 25, was in the Travis County Jail Thursday charged with aggravated assault and arson after her 29-year-old husband was doused with gasoline and set on fire.
An Austin police statement says officers who responded to a family disturbance call Monday night at an apartment in north Austin found the naked, severely burned man on the floor.
His wife was nearby and there was a strong smell of gasoline in the air, police said.
Austin Fire Department Capt. Andy Reardon said the man was expecting his wife, who arrived in the U.S. about a week ago, to massage him with oil.
The oil turned out to be gasoline.
According to Austin media reports, the man was in the bathtub expecting the massage when he was doused with gasoline, which was ignited by candles burning nearby.
Reardon said the victim was trapped inside the bathroom and evidently had to kick the door down to escape.
The man, whose name wasnt released, was in critical condition Thursday in the burn unit of Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio.
She sounds scorned.
“She’s lost that loving feeling...”
That is the norm!
I seem to think that she should have burned him on the banks of the Ganges.
I think Patel is a commong Indian surname. Probably Hindu.
I'm so hot for her, I'm so hot for her I'm so hot for her and she's so cold I'm so hot for her, I'm on fire for her I'm so hot for her and she's so cold I'm the burning bush, I'm the burning fire I'm the bleeding volcano I'm so hot for her, I'm so hot for her I'm so hot for her and she's so cold
Apparently the guy didn’t tell her you get cremated after death here.
Sounds like she was seriously angry with him however!
It means U. S. motel owner.
Build a man a fire and he stays warm for a day.
Set a man on fire and he stays warm for the rest of his life.
If this had been a husband who threw gasoline on his wife and burned her, the media would be all over this. But, the reversed situation, no outrage.
Although she didn’t molest anyone, I’d have to say after viewing her picture that she is......NOT GUILTY!!! :)
Let me be first: “Baby, light my fire!”
I think “Patel” is from India
He was just a hunka, hunka burnin’ love.
(O.K...Hanging head in shame.)
I would have smelled the gasoline and suspected trouble.
