Psych Work Up for Man Accused of Setting Woman on Fire

TUPELO, Miss.–It was Sept. of last year when a woman was kidnapped, beaten severely and set on fire with gasoline. She managed to stop, drop and roll and then to run away when the flames were finally out. Now the man accused in the crime is set for trial today.

He has pleaded not guilty to assault, kidnapping and arson charges.
