A 72-year-old Winston-Salem, North Carolina woman is dead after police say her son set her on fire.
On Monday, the Winston-Salem police department said they received a report of a woman on fire at 1946 Lyons Street. Police said the woman’s son, 48-year-old James Parker became upset with her and poured gasoline on her while she was on the porch. Parker then set his mother on fire, according to police.
Officers were able to put the fire out.
The woman who has been identified as Joanna Parker, was taken to the hospital, where she later died.
Parker is being charged with murder and is in jail with no bond.
Who the hell pours gas on their own mother and set her on fire? It don’t matter if you mad at her or not. That’s crazy!
