Puyallup woman dies from burns; boyfriend accused

The Associated Press

PUYALLUP — A Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman says a woman set on fire at a Puyallup mobile home has died of her injuries.

Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said the 34-year-old woman had been at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle since the fire two weeks ago at the Hidden Glen Mobile Home park, according to the News Tribune. Prosecutors say her boyfriend tossed gasoline on her and set her on fire. She died Sunday.

Her name was not released Monday.

The newspaper says 39-year-old Angel Reyes has pleaded not guilty to first-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault, first-degree arson and resisting arrest. Deputies say he, too, was seriously burned. He was released from a hospital last Wednesday and booked into the Pierce County Jail, with bail set at $1 million
