Memphis police have identified a woman they say died Friday by being set on fire by her boyfriend.
Alice Wells, 56, was found unresponsive and with severe burns all over her body Friday night in the bathroom of a home at 3509 Coleman Ave. in Memphis, the Memphis Police Department said in a statement.
Shortly before 9 a.m., Gregory Powell flagged down officers at 201 Poplar Ave. and said he had set his girlfriend on fire at the home, police said. While some officers detained Powell, others went to the home, where they found a strong odor of smoke and gas, and Wells' body.
She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Powell was arrested and charged with first-degree murder.
