Authorities determined her injuries came from a confrontation at a home in Gray that "was domestic in nature," investigators said.
"During an altercation with his wife, Briggs doused rubbing alcohol on the bedroom floor and also on his wife," officials with the Washington County Sheriff's Office said in a news release. "Briggs then lit the rubbing alcohol with (a) butane lighter, causing serious injury to the victim and … damages to the home."
Authorities booked Briggs into the Washington County Detention Center on Wednesday night. Bail was set at $50,000, investigators said. Briggs is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 2.
