Tucson man convicted of murder, set woman on fire

TUCSON — A Tucson man has been convicted of first-degree murder for
setting a woman on fire in 2008.

Pima County prosecutors say 55-year-old Anthony Lewis also was found guilty of
aggravated assault and second-degree burglary and was acquitted on two other
burglary counts.

Prosecutors say Lewis faces life in prison without the possibility of parole
when he’s sentenced.

The Arizona Daily Star says a sentencing date hasn’t
been set.

Authorities say Lewis had repeatedly violated a restraining order 44-year-old
Angela Hudson filed against him in early 2008.

They say he went to Hudson’s house, poured a soda bottle full of gasoline on
Hudson and set her ablaze on Sept. 22, 2008.

She suffered burns on 35 percent of her upper body and died in a Phoenix
hospital five months later.
