A Kingsville woman accused of setting her common law husband on fire was formerly indicted Thursday.
Rita Gutierrez, 25, was indicted on a first degree charge of aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury to a family member.
It was after an argument with her common law husband, 25-year old Francisco Calderon, back on Saturday, Sept. 21, when Gutierrez allegedly doused him with lighter fluid and set him on fire. Calderon is recovering from his injuries at a San Antonio burn unit.
If found guilty, Gutierrez could be sentenced to a maximum of life in prison.
