Mom Lights Seven-Year-Old Daughter On Fire

( 4UMF NEWS ) Mom Lights Seven-Year-Old Daughter On Fire:

A California mother allegedly poured gasoline on her 7-year-old daughter and lit her on the fire, an attack the girl amazingly survived.

Porche Latric Wright, 27, has been charged with attempted murder with premeditation and aggravated mayhem, the Sacramento Bee reported.

She was arrested at her Sacramento home Saturday afternoon after a friend noticed burn marks on Wright's 7-year-old daughter and called the police.

The girl was rushed to a hospital, where she is still being treated but is expected to survive. It's still unclear what may have prompted the alleged arson assault.

“She was burned so bad, face and everything, it was really really severe,” neighbor Frank Taylor told Fox40 about the young victim.

Others neighbors said they often saw and heard Wright yelling at her daughter.

Wright is being held without bail and could face life in prison if convicted. She had previously completed a "batterer's treatment program" as part of a settlement last year for a felony domestic violence charge. She also has previous charges of disorderly conduct and prostitution.
