 Indian Woman Faces Murder Charge for Setting Fire to Husband's Genitals
An Indian woman has been charged with murder for setting her husband's genitals on fire while he was asleep.

Last month, Rajini Narayan was arrested after fire destroyed her family's Unley home.

It has been alleged that Narayan's wife doused his genitals with methylated spirit and then set him on fire about 5.30am on December 7, reports News.com.au.

It is believed a major blaze was sparked at the couple's Cleland Ave townhouse in Unley when Narayan jumped out of bed and knocked over the bottle of methylated spirit.

Narayan suffered burns to 85 per cent of his body. His wife and their three kids, however, escaped unharmed from the burning house.

Rajini, 44, is listed to appear in Adelaide Magistrates Court on Monday morning on upgraded charges including murder and endangering life.
