According to the police officials, a 19-year-old woman is charged for setting a couple on fire and killing one of the victims. Authorities are looking for a 19-year-old woman accused of setting a man on fire area and killing him. Before he died, he told investigators that a woman entered the residence and poured an unknown substance on him and lit him on fire.
According to the police officials, her name is Emma Presler and she was charged with murder, Texas authorities announced on Monday. Officers responded to a report of an arson at the residence at 2046 Aspen Glade Drive at about 10 p.m. on August 6.
Both victims, Devin Graham and Karissa Lindros, were transported to a hospital and both suffered severe burns. Both were listed in critical condition and Graham eventually died. Lindros remains hospitalized and is fighting for her life. Police say she suffered burns to 70 percent of her body. Witnesses reported seeing a young woman fleeing the scene in a white sedan shortly after the victims were set on fire.
One of the neighbors told police:
“All I can think about is that house being on fire, and that guy screaming. It’s just been pretty bad. You could tell he was burned, bad. He did not have any clothes on, and his skin was just peeling. You could tell he was hurt badly because he was screaming his lungs out.”
Investigators named Emma Presler as the suspect in this case. She is a known person to authorities. In Sept. 2020, Presler was charged with murder after 20-year-old Texas woman, with disabilities, was shot and killed as she slept in her bed. Four men, including Presler’s boyfriend, were arrested at the time. Charges against Presler were later dropped after a judge found no probable cause.
