Wife lights husband's genitals on fire, kills husband, burns down house. A "tragedy".
A MAN whose wife allegedly set fire to his genitals while he slept has died.
Satish Narayan, 47, an engineer, lost his battle to survive at the Royal Adelaide Hospital yesterday, 20 days after sustaining burns to most of his body.
The incident has now been declared a major crime by police and it is likely his wife, Rajini, will face a charge of manslaughter or murder.
Police have alleged Mr Narayan's wife doused his genitals with methylated spirit and then set him on fire about 5.30am on December 7. ...
A neighbour told the Sunday Mail she had visited Mrs Narayan in the Adelaide Women's Prison yesterday, before she had been told of her husband's death.
She said she was providing support to her friend over what she said was a "terrible tragedy".
She said the pair had held hands and prayed during her visit. "She wanted him to live, more than anything," she said.
She wanted nothing more than for him to live... except to light his balls on fire.
