KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Kansas City, Missouri, woman is accused of felony assault for allegedly setting her longtime boyfriend on fire.

Jackson County prosecutors charged 35-year-old Amanda Drake with first-degree domestic assault on Monday. Prosecutors requested that she be held on $100,000 bond. Online court records don’t show whether she has an attorney.

Prosecutors say firefighters responding to a reported blaze Monday found a man who told them he had been asleep when he felt liquid poured on his back. The man said that when he woke up, he was on fire.

The Kansas City Star reports that the man sustained burns to his face and shoulders and was listed later Monday in serious condition at a hospital.

Prosecutors say Drake was the only other person at the residence at the time.
