Ohio woman set on fire by ex-boyfriend in 2015 dies

Malinowski was set on fire by her ex-boyfriend after a heated argument. He received 11 years in prison, the maximum sentence possible. The 41-year-old claimed that it was a horrific mistake, adding that he accidentally sparked the blaze when he lit a cigarette.

Both of her ears and parts of her fingers were melted off in the blaze. For nearly two years, Malinowski has been fighting for her life in a hospital, but in the end, her injuries proved to be fatal. She lost the ability to speak louder than a whisper because of significant damage to her trachea, and she lost the ability to walk and needed a ventilator to help her breathe. People who had seen Judy Malinowski before the incident could not believe that the lovely mother of two had been reduced to a helpless skeleton with burns all over her body.

Judy endured 16 months of agonising surgery as she battled back from the brink of death. She suffered severe burns and has undergone almost 60 surgeries since that time.

"It's destroyed my life, my family's life, my kids' life", she said with the help of a speaking valve.

She remained in hospital until May of this year, when she was moved to palliative care.

The Franklin County Prosecutor's Office was seeking a murder charge against Slager if Malinowski were to die.

Monaco have already sold Bernardo Silva to Manchester City in a deal which could be worth more than £60m. If he was to keep that record up at the Emirates, he would be a fan favourite in no time.

Malinowski also leaves behind a 9-year-old daughter. Judy's Law is a bill that increases the sentence of someone who purposely uses an accelerant to disfigure another person.

"O'Brien said. "This day was not unexpected for probably a long time, but it's sad that it finally arrived".

"Please pass my mom's law because together we can prevent these types of situations", she said.

It unanimously passed the Ohio House in May and is waiting on the Senate.

Doctors told Malinkowski from the beginning that she likely would not survive her injuries.

In January, Malinowski recorded a sealed deposition that could be used as evidence in a trial should Slager be charged with murder, officials said.
