Woman sets herself ablaze moments before she’s arrested for killing husband

A Houston woman set herself on fire on Friday while police were about to arrest her for allegedly killing her husband last year.

Janet Alexander, 69, is recovering in a local hospital after she used gasoline to set herself and her house on fire as law enforcement officials were about to serve her a murder warrant.

Video footage taken by a KHOU-TV, Alexander’s home is the same one in which her 64-year-old husband, Lionel Alexander, was found stabbed to death on April 27 of last year.

Police said that it appeared Janet Alexander, who had suffered multiple lacerations to her chest, was forced to defend herself, according to KPRC-TV.

She was taken to the hospital at the time for non-life-threatening injuries.

The case was sent to a grand jury, which recommended murder charges against Janet Alexander.

If convicted, she faces between 5 years to life in prison.

Alexander’s condition is not known.
