MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) -- A Detroit-area woman who authorities say set her boyfriend on fire and chased him with a butcher knife has pleaded guilty in the case.
Forty-year-old Sheila Golly of Roseville on Tuesday pleaded guilty in Macomb County Circuit Court in Mount Clemens to assault with a dangerous weapon. She could be sentenced to time already served on May 24. A more serious assault with intent to do great bodily harm charge will be dropped.
Defense lawyer Paul Stockyj says the plea agreement was in the best interests of all involved.
Police say the couple argued Jan. 2 about the man's drinking and Golly poured nail polish on him. They say she used a lighter to set him afire. He was hospitalized for treatment.
