Woman Sets Husband On Fire To Get His Attention

 

An Oregon woman accused of setting her husband on fire because of an argument over weed killer is in jail on an attempted murder charge. An officer on patrol Friday evening saw the couple outside their Mount Angel home and initially thought there had been an accident with a barbecue. The man, 43-year-old Timothy Bork, was flown to a hospital in Portland with burns to his face and chest covering 15% of his body. Court papers say his wife, 45-year-old Toddi Bork, confronted him over spraying poison on weeds that could have sickened her dogs. She told police she doused him with gasoline and set the fire to get his attention.
