FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) - Sebastian County authorities are searching for an illegal alien wanted for questioning after his girlfriend was set on fire.
Sebastian County Sheriff's Capt. William Hollenbeck says 32-year-old Rigorberto Saenz is wanted on a felony warrant for first-degree domestic abuse in connection with Sunday's incident.
Hollenbeck says Petrina Moguel-Mendez suffered second- and third-degree burns after she was doused with gasoline and set on fire. She remained in critical condition Friday at a Little Rock Hospital. Hollenbeck says an arrest warrant was issued for Saenz because of statements from Moguel-Mendez and the woman's 8-year-old son.
He says the two have a history of domestic abuse. --- Information from: Southwest Times Record, http://www.swtimes.com/
