A forty one year old woman was found severely burned outside of her home on Christmas Day in Pomona, California.
Police said that neighbors saw the woman running from her home engulfed in flames falling down on the street.
Authorities said that fifty one year old, Clarence Duwell Dear, had an argument with the woman that escalated to Dear chasing the victim outside and dousing her with gasoline. Dear set the woman on fire with what police believe was with a lit cigarette.
The victim, who was transported to a local hospital, died as she arrived.
