A 76-year-old convenience store clerk who was set on fire during a robbery at the Garland gas station where she worked has died.
Nancy Harris died at Parkland Hospital on Friday evening, Garland police said in a statement. Harris had burns on more than 40 percent of her body.
Police said Harris, a clerk at a Fina station in the 3300 block of Broadway Boulevard, was attacked at about 7 a.m. Sunday.
Two officers saw her emerge from the gas station with the upper half of her body on fire. One of the officers put out the fire with a fire extinguisher. She told the officers she had been robbed, doused with a liquid and set on fire.
Matthew Johnson, 36, was arrested a short time later and charged with criminal attempted capital murder. Garland police said they would work with the Dallas County District Attorney's Office to pursue a charge of capital murder.
Johnson is being held in the Dallas County Jail a $1 million bond.
What can you say sad news. I hope the repeat offender Obama son gets jumped in prison by his new wife and beat to a bloody pulp.
A needle is too good for this one. Let him ROT!
An unfortunate update to an earlier story:
I volunteer to put the needle in his arm. In the old days in the South this creep would be allowed to “escape” from jail and then be shot. Or he might be found wrapped in chains in the bottom of a river. The official explanation would be “He stole more chains than he could swim with.”
I’m for law and order and a trial. But if this guy is on video setting this woman on fire there is a strong argument for a speedy “fair” trial immediately follow by an execution.
get a rope
Poor lady. RIP.
No, he will spend the next 30 years on death row, getting the best food and other comforts, because we are a (stupid) compassionate nation. As a compassionate nation we end up losers.
Fry his ass as soon as possible would be my recommendation. Or, oops he slipped down the steps. Whatever.
He stole more chains than he could swim with.
Or with about 5 shotgun blasts : “Case closed. The worst case of suicide I ever saw”.
Each time, a little bit of the good in this country dies and a little more of the evil grows. Times a million.
Funny his picture with his nose up in the air looks like images I have seen of Obama sporting the same arrogant pose. Piece of garbage
Preach it Brother.
Why would someone set an elderly woman on fire after robbing her? Sounds like a hate crime to me.
I say put burns over %40 of his body then let him slowly die in pain.
Just like his victim.
Why does the guy have a chance to pony up that money?
God bless this poor woman. Between this and the little boy in NY.........
I can’t stand the image of this disgusting monster!
What a heinous despicable act.
He’ll be a real hero in the Joint.
Maybe the New Black Panthers will put a bounty on his head /s
