National Post | News

An Alberta man has been charged with beating his girlfriend and then deliberately setting her on fire.

RCMP say they were called to an apartment complex in Leduc last month where a 25-year-old woman suffered severe burns.

Police say their initial investigation indicated her burns occurred accidentally, but they say an intensive followup investigation determined her boyfriend had allegedly set her on fire after a violent assault.

Tyrell Ivan James Lee, 23, of Leduc, south of Edmonton faces charges that include attempted murder, aggravated assault, arson with disregard for human life and failing to comply with a probation order.

His next court date is Oct. 17 in Leduc provincial court.
