Lt. Kevin Bobo said the investigation began December 16 when the brother of the woman called deputies and told them about the attack, which happened on December 6. The brother told investigators that Brown beat the woman with a liquor bottle, then poured gasoline on her and set her on fire, Bobo said.
The woman was able to put the fire out by jumping into a bathtub and then drove herself to the hospital, according to Bobo.
The attack happened in the master bedroom of the home the two shared, warrants showed.
Because of the severity of her injuries, the woman wasn’t able to give emergency room personnel any specific details about the attack as they treated her and then transferred her to the Augusta Burn Center. The woman suffered severe burns and permanent damage to her face, head and neck, according to warrants.
A Spartanburg County investigator talked to the woman over the phone and also enlisted the help of the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office to take a detailed statement from the woman and photograph her injuries, Bobo said.
