Gasoline Assault

By  | 

Omaha police have arrested an Omaha man accused of pouring gasoline on his girlfreind and setting her on fire.

Bail was set for Antuan Knight, 26, at $5-million Thursday.

Douglas County Prosecutor Jennifer Meckna says Knight is accused of pouring gas on his girlfreind two weeks ago but it did not light then. But he reportedly did it again two days later on April 23 and this time it did ignite.

Aisha McGhee, 30, suffered second degree burns over 20% of her upper body, arms and head.

Knight was charged Thursday in Douglas County Court with attempted second degree murder.
