MONTREAL (CP) - A Montreal woman who used fondue fuel to set her late
boyfriend's penis on fire has been sentenced to four years in prison.
The Crown says taking into account time already served, Andree Rene will have to remain incarcerated for another 30 months. Crown attorney Steve Lariviere said today the 44-year-old woman also needs follow-up help for her psychological and alcohol problems. In April 2001, Rene's boyfriend went to bed following a heated argument between them.
As Guillaume Pungo snoozed, Rene doused the man's private parts with fuel and set them aflame.
The 52-year-old spent a month in hospital after suffering third-degree burns in the pelvic area and on his chest.
Lariviere also says Pungo, who died last year of unrelated causes, had difficulty getting into relationships after what happened.
Yeow! Double-Yeow!! Difficulty gettin' inta relationships, eh? Yeah... I imagine gettin' yer dick burned off might make things a little difficult.
