‘Jealous wife’ charged with murder after setting her husbands genitals on fire

January 6, 2009

Adelaide, Australia (ChattahBox) — ‘Light My Fire’ has taken a twisted turn.  An Australian woman Rajini Narayan, is accused of fatally setting her husband’s genitals on fire  (on Dec. 8, 2008) because she thought he was having an affair.

The 44-year-old woman confessed to neighbors that she set her husband on fire after she saw him hug another woman, according to prosecutors.

The husband jumped out of bed and knocked over the bottle of alcohol, causing the fire to spread and resulting in 1 million Australian dollars ($711,000) of damage to their town house and an adjacent property, the Adelaide Advertiser reported.

Rajini Narayan was initially charged with endangering life (the couple’s three children were at home during the incident) and arson but the charges were upgraded to murder after her 47-year-old husband, Satish Narayan, died from his injuries last week

Prosecutor Lucy Boord said quoted Narayan allegedly saying: “I just wanted to burn his penis so it belongs to me and no one else. … I didn’t mean this to happen.”

Not surprisingly, Narayan was remanded in custody for psychological assessment.
