Man torched with fluid by woman in Guápiles

A woman in Guápiles ignited fluid and burned a man Sunday.

The Judicial Investigating Organization said the woman dosed the man with oil and alcohol and then lit him on fire as the climax of a dispute. The incident took place at the man’s house in Toro Amarillo, Guápiles.

The agency reported that the man, a 36-year-old Columbian, was brought to Hospital San Juan de Dios Sunday evening with burns covering 70 percent of his body. The woman is still at large, but a spokesperson for the judicial agency said officials have a prime suspect.
