A Texas woman is facing charges for allegations that she punished her stepdaughter by pouring rubbing alcohol over the child’s face, of which she then ignited.

On May 13, the Grand Prairie neighbor of Dalia Jimenez notified the police with concern after she saw what appeared to be burns on the face of Jimenez’s young stepdaughter.

The authorities went to the residence and reported that the child was gleeful and outside playing with friends, but took note of the visible burns on her face.

A man who has been accused of driving while under the influence of alcohol allegedly caused an accident on Sunday and was reportedly seen walking back to his burning vehicle to light a cigarette off of the flames.

The alleged driver of the car, 25-year-old Robert Quigley, was traveling on Interstate 80 with a woman in the passenger seat when his vehicle, which is suspected of traveling at a speed of nearly 80 mph, crashed into the back of an SUV that was at a standstill in traffic. Following the collision, Quigley’s car ignited from what was suspected as a possible breach in the fuel line.

A nearby Citrus Heights Police officer reported that he noticed the accident when Quigley’s car caught fire, and when he headed toward the scene to assist he believed that Quigley changed seats with his passenger so that it would appear as if she was the driver.
