WARNER ROBINS -- A man who was set on fire earlier in the week in the 100 block of Kingsbury Circle was listed in critical condition Friday at an Augusta burn center.
James Darrell Williams, 47, was seen running and screaming from a house in the 100 block of Kingsbury Circle on Monday morning, according to a Warner Robins news release issued Friday.
An officer responding to the 10:16 a.m. 911 call found Williams in a front yard badly burned on his head, face and chest. Williams told the officer he was set on fire by a woman, and Warner Robins police arrested the woman he named, according to a Warner Robins police incident report.
Barbara Anne Johnson, 53, a cashier at a fast-food restaurant, allegedly poured rubbing alcohol on him inside her home, the release stated.
Although Williams initially was identified in the police report as homeless, the news release said there is evidence that suggests he’d been staying at Johnson’s home on and off. Williams and Johnson were “acquaintances,” the release said.
Johnson was being held Friday without bond at the Houston County jail.
