A judge in King County Superior Court set Tatanysha M. Hedman’s bail at $500,000. She is being held in the King County Jail in downtown Seattle while investigators look into charges of first-degree ass*ault and first-degree arson.
On July 22, she will be back in court.
Court documents say that when Renton police officers entered an apartment on Martin Luther King Way, they could smell a strong smell of gasoline. Prosecutors say that Hedman doused her husband with gasoline and set him on fire.
On a couch in the living room, there were burn marks. Someone found a gas can.
A woman who was staying in the apartment told investigators that she had heard the couple arguing in a bedroom. She saw Hedman run out of the apartment from the bedroom.
Then, her husband, whose head was on fire, ran out of the apartment. Documents say that when he fell next to the couch, she threw a blanket over him to put out the fire.
When the fire was out, the man got dressed and left the apartment. After a few minutes, his friend left.
The husband went to the 7-Eleven at 12848 Martin Luther King Jr. Way and asked a worker to call for help. Documents show that he told the police officer, “My wife did it.” Before he could tell the officer her name, he fell asleep.
He was taken to Harborview Medical Center, where his condition was very bad but stable.
On July 16, police caught a 40-year-old woman who was wanted for setting her husband on fire.
The Renton Police Department asked the public for help on Thursday to find Tatanysha M. Hedman, who they think put gasoline on her 52-year-old husband and then set him on fire at an apartment complex in Renton.
The husband then went into a store and asked the clerk to call for help. Officers went to the store, but they soon found out that the attack happened at an apartment nearby.
Hedman was taken into custody by special-operations officers from the Renton Police Department. There were no details about the arrest right away.
At about 11 p.m., Hedman was taken to the King County Jail in downtown Seattle to be questioned about first-degree assault and first-degree arson. Today in Seattle is her first time in court.
At Harborview Medical Center, the victim was getting care for injuries that were not life-threatening.
