Man accused of lighting ex-girlfriend on fire faces new charge

YAKIMA COUNTY, Wash. -- Another charge has been filed against a man accused of lighting his ex-girlfriend on fire. Stuart Bachman now faces animal cruelty charges.

Court papers say Elva Grant's dog was in the room when he doused her with a chemical and set the fire. Grant told authorities Bachman kicked the dog.

Records indicate the dog died from smoke inhalation.
