Woman sets boyfriend car on fire, suggests "get some marshmallows"

A woman was arrested over the weekend in connection with a car fire. 51-year-old Gayle Winfrey was apparently angry with her boyfriend, who according to investigators, was more interested in sleeping than in participating in the argument. Lieutenant Moore said Ms. Winfrey decided to set fire to her boyfriend's car, using gasoline and a stick of incense. The details all came out in a confession shortly after the fire.

After setting the car on fire, Ms. Winfrey said she went back to her boyfriend, telling him that he "might want to get some marshmallows." When he still showed no interest in getting up, Ms. Winfrey evidently panicked and tried to put the fire out with a small fire extinguisher, but by that time the flames were just too intense. Chattanooga firefighters arrived moments later and quickly put the fire out, but the car was considered a total loss. » Article here
