CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A Concord, New Hampshire, man is facing charges over allegedly setting his twin sister on fire.

Police said Thursday that a man had been arrested in connection with a house fire that left a woman with serious burn injuries. The woman was taken to a hospital in Boston. Her condition wasn’t immediately known.

According to court documents obtained by WMUR-TV, 37-year-old Dwayne Crawford told police he deliberately lit his twin sister on fire. Police say the woman told her two sons Crawford poured gasoline on her before setting the blaze.

Crawford is charged with arson, attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault, reckless conduct and criminal mischief.

He was arraigned and held without bail. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer who could comment on his behalf.
