Man gets 12 years for lighting girlfriend on fire
BBC |
"A man who scarred his girlfriend for life when he set fire to her has been sent to prison for 12 years. Gavin Giles, 33, admitted causing grievous bodily harm to childhood sweetheart Kerry Wilson last year. The court heard Giles, who suffered mood swings, had been drinking at Miss Wilson's home in Aylsham, Norfolk when he tried to harm himself with a knife. He then poured methanol over the woman and flicked a lighter several times to set her alight... She suffered 32% burns to her body, partial disability because of nerve damage and permanent scarring."
