For some odd reason, a Washington woman was arrested for setting her husband on fire. However, the reason seems to been extremely justifiable… in my humble opinion. 40-year-old Tatanysha Hedman set her husband, 52-year-old Vincent Phillips on fire by pouring gasoline on him while he was sleeping and sparking a flame. Unlike the traditional “he cheated on me” reason, Hedman explained — when questioned by police — that she did it because he touched her 7-year-old daughter inappropriately. More info after the jump.

Hedman also explained why she opted for the fire method. It was because shooting him “was too nice,” according to reports.

Phillips is hospitalized and faces first-degree child molestation charges.


Hedman is being held on assault and arson charges. See her mugshot in the GALLERY
