APOLLO BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- An Apollo Beach man accused of setting
his estranged wife on fire has been charged with attempted
first-degree murder.

Christopher Hanney was booked into Hillsborough County's Orient
Road Jail on Wednesday night.

A Hillsborough Circuit judge ordered the 44-year-old Hanney be held without bail on Thursday.

A hearing was scheduled for Tuesday.

His wife remains hospitalized in critical condition.

According to a news release, Hanney doused his wife in a flammable liquid, hit her on the head with a hammer and set her on fire.

The woman ran from her home to a neighbor's house and said
that her husband had set the fire.

Both Hanney and his wife were taken to hospitals for burn treatment.
