According to Mail Online
A Connecticut woman turned herself in to police this morning after admitting to have burned her boyfriend to death – but the man survived.
Police charged 47-year-old Julia Rivera, of Hartford, with assault, reckless endangerment, violation of a protective order and disorderly conduct.
The woman called 911 at around 12.30am Friday to report that she had killed her boyfriend.
When officers responded to the scene, they saw Rivera waiting for them outside 116 South Street, ready to be hauled away.
‘Arrest me. I did it. I burned him alive,’ she reportedly told them.
What the 47-year-old did not know was that her paramour was still alive.
The man was found inside a home a few blocks down and rushed to the Connecticut Burn Center at Bridgeport Hospital with second-degree burns to 70 per cent of his body, the Hartford Courant reported.
According to police, Rivera splashed sizzling corn oil from a frying pan on her boyfriend.
Miss Rivera also required medical attention after complaining of chest pains.
Chest pains? Was she stressed out because she almost killed a man?
