Default Man Accused of Setting Wife on Fire

Constantino Monterrosas Gamez, 39, and his 23-year-old wife were heading south on the I-15 in his 2002 Chevrolet S-10 pickup when they got into some kind of dispute. Just north of Temescal Canyon Road in Corona, Gamez is accused of dousing the Mrs. with gasoline and flicking a cigarette lighter to torch her.

As the pickup continued speeding at 65 to 70 mph, she opened the door and jumped. Gamez continued heading south for a short stretch before losing control of the truck and slamming into the back of a garbage truck.

Neither Gamez nor the garbage truck driver were hurt, but Gamez's wife obviously suffered injuries from being burned and slamming into the pavement.

Amazingly, she is expected to recover, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Gamez was arrested at the scene by CHP officers and booked into the Presley Detention Center in Riverside on suspicion of attempted murder, domestic violence, kidnapping, false imprisonment and making criminal threats. Bail was set at $1 million.

The CHP is asking anyone who witnessed the incident to call investigators Daniel Perez and William Bozyk at 951.637.8000.

That's a punishment usually endemic to Indian culture. Setting a wife on fire was some sort of perverse act of retribution. Wonder if this guy is indian?
