HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Police say a Connecticut woman asked to be arrested because she had burned her boyfriend to death. The man actually survived, and was taken to a hospital with second-degree burns over 70 percent of his body.
Police say the woman called them just after midnight Friday to say she had killed her boyfriend and would be waiting outside her Hartford home for police to arrive. The woman reportedly said: "Arrest me. I did it. I burned him alive."
Officers found the victim alive at another residence nearby. His name was not disclosed.
Police charged 47-year-old Julia Rivera with assault, reckless endangerment, violation of a protective order and disorderly conduct. She was taken to a hospital after complaining of chest pains.
It was not clear if she had a lawyer.
