BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A South Florida woman set on fire at a gas station is recovering from second- and third-degree burns.
Naomie Breton, 33, was attacked Monday at the Boynton Beach gas station where she was meeting her ex-boyfriend, with whom she shares custody of her 4-year-old son.
Breton tells Miami television station WPLG (http://bit.ly/LCgnwv ) that Roosevelt Mondesir threatened her with a knife, poured gasoline over her and her car and chased her around the vehicle before lighting her on fire.
Breton says the only way she could put out the flames was to take off her shirt. She was home Wednesday with bandages on both arms, her right shoulder, her chest and her stomach. She also has burns on her face.
Mondesir has been denied bond on a first-degree attempted murder charge.
