No jail for woman who set husband on fire
Prosecutors lost a bid to overturn the release of an Australian woman who was convicted of setting her husband on fire. Rajini Narayan was convicted of manslaughter for dousing her husband in gasoline and then lighting him on fire. The trial judge suspended the jail term because she said she was distraught over her husband’s alleged infidelity. Narayan, 46, said she only meant to burn her husband’s penis a little, but he told her she couldn’t. She grew angry and threw gasoline and a lighted candle at his back. He died from severe burns later in the hospital.
