An argument erupted between Devonne Marsh and his girlfriend inside their home Detroit home on Jan. 14. Police said Marsh first doused the woman in lighter fluid and then set her aflame. Authorities responded to the home that night to investigate a report that a woman there was being held against her will.

When they arrived on the scene, they found the 26-year-old victim lying on a bed in the basement with severe burns covering about 60% of her body, the Macomb Daily reported. She is 27 weeks into a pregnancy with twins and remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Marsh, 42, was arrested and charged with kidnapping and abduction, aggravated and felonious assault, and violation of the controlled substance act. Despite having a criminal record, his, his bond was set at $50,000 or 10%, meaning he could be freed should he be able to drum up $5,000.

According to the Michigan Department of Corrections, Marsh has been in hiding since March 2020, when he absconded probation. A year earlier, he pleaded guilty in Macomb County Circuit Court to four counts of delivering more than 50 grams of cocaine and sentenced to two years probation.

He has previously served time served time in prison for possession of a controlled substance, weapons/felony firearms, and assault with a dangerous weapon. Marsh also has an active arrest warrant from the Livonia Police Department.
