Arlington news, Texas news.

A Texas woman bought 50 cents of gasoline at a gas station and poured it on her boyfriend before setting him ablaze on July 18.

Ricky Doyle, 25, did not survive his severe burns and died on Tuesday after the attack that “melted” the skin off his body.

The couple was arguing at the Shell gas station before the incident, the Arlington Police Department said.

  • “I’m going to kill you,” suspect Breana Johnson reportedly told the victim before going inside the station, buying the gasoline, and returning to light Doyle up as he sat in the backseat of a car.

    Witnesses saw Doyle getting engulfed in flames as he ran out of the car before a passerby used an extinguisher and put the flames down.

    Doyle was “bleeding and had skin that appeared to have melted off his body,” police said.

    Johnson claimed that the fire erupted because she was smoking while pumping gas, which triggered the fire.
