The sister of the woman who was set alight has made a facebook post about the incident. Lesha Richardson yesterday explained what happened to her sister, Monique Richardson, at the hands of her boyfriend Pedro Ashton.

In the post Lesha explains that her sister had suffered endless physical abuse at the hands of Pedro Ashton but for some reason kept going back to him. On Saturday night Pedro was said to be demanding $20 that Monique had but refused to give him which she said she was holding so her son could attend a function the next day. While witnessed by the victims son Pedro doused the bed that Monique was lying on with gasoline and set it ablaze saying when questioned why he did it “she think she bad well me show she who badder” while the victim screamed in pain.

The blaze was eventually put out by the son. Police are said to be investigating the matter.
