Idaho Woman Charged After Pouring Gasoline on Husband
MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) — A 38-year-old northern Idaho woman who police say doused her husband with gasoline and stabbed him in the face has been charged with felony domestic battery in the presence of a child.
The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports that Mary E. Moore was charged Monday in 2nd District Court, with a preliminary hearing set for Thursday. Police say Moore on Saturday came into the bedroom with a butcher knife and a can of gasoline and approached her husband of three months, who was on the bed.
The couple had reportedly been fighting about keeping the trailer clean. Police say she covered his legs with fuel and lit a piece of paper near him. He did not require hospitalization. Authorities say three children were in the home at the time.
