Michael Slager, 41, pleaded no contest to aggravated arson and was jailed for 11 years for his cruel attack on the mum-of-two from Ohio. Medics have warned there is still a chance she may succumb to her injuries – if so, Slager would face murder charges.
He originally maintained he set her on fire by accident while lighting a cigarette.
