A man in Schenectady, New York has been arrsted after throwing gasoline on his wife and setting her on fire during an argument. It killed her.
69-year-old Antonio Bargallo and his wife, identified as 48-year-old Elizabeth Gonzales, owned the home where a fire had been reported Saturday morning. A neighbor was rattled awake by her screams. That neighbor used a blanket to put out the flames.
The victim was airlifted to a hospital. She died there Sunday morning.
Mr. Bargallo has been charged with attempted murder, which cops say will likely be upgraded to second-degree murder now that the victim has died.
He’s currently residing in the county jail without bail.
