BLACKTON — Arkansas state troopers have captured a Mississippi man accused of dousing his girlfriend with gasoline and setting her on fire.

Officers arrested 43-year-old Jerry Glenn Willis on Friday in Blackton, about 70 miles east of Little Rock. He was being held in a local jail Friday night and will be sent to Mississippi.

Authorities say 46-year-old Stacy Mitchell Frank was found by a highway Wednesday in Pearl River County, Miss., where she and Willis live. Frank remains hospitalized in Jackson, Miss.

Mississippi Department of Public Safety spokesman Warren Strain said officers found Frank's SUV near where Willis was caught.

Strain said Willis will be charged with kidnapping, attempted murder and felony taking of a motor vehicle.

What we need is gasoline and match control. No one should be able to own an assault lighter or high capacity gas container!
