Three Years After Man Set on Fire, Girlfriend is in Custody
A St. Louis County woman is now in custody, three years after she allegedly tried to kill her boyfriend in Memphis, Tennessee, by dousing him with gasoline and setting him on fire.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that U.S. Marshals on Friday arrested 38-year-old Tamika Jones of Bellefontaine Neighbor. She is held without bail pending transfer to Shelby County, Tennessee, where she faces attempted murder and assault charges.
Jones is accused of pouring gasoline on Cedric Garrison in May 2012 outside a Memphis convenience store. Authorities say she had been living in Bellefontaine Neighbors under an alias.
