Fuming about an unrequited love, a Florida man allegedly set a woman on fire after finding out she was in a relationship with his stepfather, according to a report.
Luis Angel Quinonez, 53, was accused of dousing Angelica Acosta Blanco, 61, with gasoline and igniting her, the Sun-Sentinel reported, citing the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
Firefighters responding to the home in Lantana at 10:30 p.m. Monday found Quinonez using a garden hose on the burning woman after she ran outside, according to the news outlet.
Quinonez told investigators he was furious about the “romantic relationship” between Acosta Blanco and his stepfather, Feliberto Alvarez, because he also was in love with her, police said.
The woman had lived in the family’s home for years and had cared for Quinonez’s mother until she died about a month ago, according to the Sun-Sentinel. Alvarez lived in a separate home nearby.
Quinonez said that when he discovered that Acosta Blanco was involved with his stepfather, he stormed off to a gas station and filled a container with fuel.
Police said Quinonez, who said he had been drinking, then returned home, poured the gasoline on Acosta Blanco and set her on fire using a lighter.
The victim was taken to a local hospital in critical condition and then flown to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami with second- and third-degree burns.
Her condition was not immediately available.
Quinonez was charged with attempted first-degree murder and held without bond in the Palm Beach County Jail.
