Georgia man sets wife on fire at fuel pump

GEORGIA

Austin Dawkins, 37, was talking to his wife while pumping gas in Clarksville, Georgia last month, when he flicked his cigarette lighter.

The fuel vapor erupted, catching 30-year-old Jessica Dawkings on fire. She suffered second and third-degree burns over much of her body.

Joseph Dawkins was only treated for minor burns. He's now charged with misdemeanor reckless conduct.
