Authorities say a central Florida woman is in critical condition after her boyfriend set her on fire.
Lakeland Police Chief Lisa Womack says the 26-year-old woman was taken to a hospital Friday night with severe burns. Witnesses reported seeing the woman on fire run from a home.
Police say the woman's boyfriend set her on fire and then stole a van. Later that evening, police say the man burglarized a home and then tried to use a stolen credit card at a gas station.
Womack says the man was taken into custody Saturday morning. Additional details about his arrest were not immediately available.
