A Holly man is behind bars after being accused of dousing his wife in gasoline and setting her on fire last night.

The names of both parties involved have not been released. We do know the man is 55-years-old and the woman is 56 years of age. Reports indicate the woman jumped out of a window from a trailer (Grange Hall Road) and ran to a neighbor's for help. When police responded to the call, the man had barricaded himself in the trailer. Within a few minutes, authorities took him into custody.

The woman is not facing life-threatening injuries, that is not to discount what she went through. I am so glad she was able to escape. The man is currently being held at the Oakland County Jail.
