Wheelchair-bound woman set on fire

Wheelchair-bound woman died after being doused in methylated spirits and set on fire.

A wheelchair-bound woman has died after being set on fire during a domestic argument, police say.

The 50-year-old woman was allegedly doused in methylated spirits and set alight in Narromine, in the state’s west, last night.

A man fled before neighbours rushed to the house and doused the flames.

The woman was flown to Sydney’s St George Hospital with serious burns to her face, arms and torso, and died this morning.

A 57-year-old Narromine man was arrested and charged with attempted murder and causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

Police said the charge was expected to be upgraded to murder during a court appearance at Narromine Local Court today.
