Wife accused of setting husband on fire

MOUNT ANGEL, Ore. – An Oregon woman accused of setting her husband on fire because of an argument about weed killer is jailed on an attempted murder charge.

KPTV reported (http://bit.ly/1BxADbC ) an officer on patrol Friday evening saw the woman and man outside their Mount Angel home and initially thought there had been an accident with a barbecue.

The man, Timothy Bork, 43, was flown to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland with burns to his face and chest that covered 15 percent of his body.

Court papers said his wife, Toddi Bork, 45, confronted him about spraying poison on weeds that could have sickened her dogs. She told police she doused him with gasoline and set the fire to get his attention.

Her lawyer did not immediately return a call Tuesday.
