A Texas man has been arrested after he allegedly poured “scalding hot water” on his disabled roommate and then set her on fire twice, authorities said.

On Oct. 27, officers responded to a home in San Antonio after receiving a report of a woman with severe burns, according to an affidavit obtained by KENS.

The victim, a 36-year-old woman who police said “autistic and receives monthly disability payments,” claimed to officers the incident occurred two days earlier when a caretaker was bathing her and her roommate, identified as 26-year-old Kamron Kearney, got angry after she urinated on herself.

According to the affidavit, Kearney allegedly poured “scalding hot water” on the woman while she was still in the shower, causing severe burns to her neck and back.

Police said the alleged abuse continued when Kearney forced the woman to stand in a corner until “her legs were swollen."

Kearney then reportedly was accused of pouring rubbing alcohol on the victim and setting her on fire, burning her arms, according to investigators.
