A Florida woman with a history of violent behavior used a sadistic payback manuever all because a plate of leftovers.
Police are saying Melissa Dawn Sellers set her roommate on fire after she discovered he had discarded over her coveted plate of spaghetti and meatballs.
The fight, according to a witness, erupted after Carlos Ortiz Jr., 42, threw out Melissa Dawn Sellers’ spaghetti and meatballs, according to Clearwater police.
“She was setting little objects on fire, then that turned into pouring nail polish remover all over him, and then all of a sudden, the lighter sparked and he lit on fire,” said Ines Causevic, a friend of the victim, Bay News 9 reported.
Sellers had been staying with Ortiz after losing her job at Wal-Mart.
Causevic said she doused her friend with water and pulled off his shirt, which was on fire.
Apparently Ortiz picked the wrong individual to extend some hospitality too. Sellers was convicted of battery back in 2008 and her devious looking mug shot reveals she had no issues with his face and lips reportedly being melted off.
She has been charged with battery for her latest act of arson.
