Mother Sets Husband on Fire For Molesting Her Young Daughter
Don’t mess with a woman’s children — as Sarah Palin described it, doing so can wake up the mama grizzly inside every mother and you’ll probably regret it. Vincent Phillips learned that the hard way, when he got set on fire after his wife found out he had been molesting her daughter.
On July 17th Tatanya Hedman, 40 was seen buying gasoline from a gas station on camera mere hours before the incident occurred. According to police, Hedman poured gasoline all over her sleeping husband, 52-year-old Vincent Phillips and proceeded to light him on fire.
Phillips put out the flames and then drove to a nearby convenience store where he exclaimed “I’m on fire!” even though he was clearly not on fire anymore. He then reportedly said “my wife did it,” before passing out. A blurry picture of him on the ground at the convenience store can be seen here.
When Hedman was questioned by the police, she admitted to the crime and reasoned that “shooting him was too nice” for hurting her daughter, who is Phillips’ stepdaughter.
Police say Phillips is in intensive care at the hospital and is facing charges of first-degree molestation while Hedman is in jail for arson and assault.
Hedman isn’t innocent in the situation, and charging her with arson and assault is the right thing for authorities to do. But perhaps her sentence shouldn’t be too harsh — after all, she certainly was right. Shooting a man who would molest a child is too nice.
