A woman who allegedly set fire to her boyfriend in New York has been caught in some of the most shocking CCTV footage ever.

Agnes Bermudez apparently doused her lover, William Salazar, with carpet cleaner before setting him alight.

The couple both went up in flames and a video camera filmed the horrific scene as Bermudez writhes around on the pavement in agony.

Covered in flames, Salazar then runs into a shop for help whereupon the shopkeeper pours gallons of water over the pair.

Salazar later died from his injuries and Bermudez is badly disfigured.

Sadly, the carnage didn’t end there. Bermudez is also charged with killing three neighbours, who died as the fire spread in the Queens area apartment block.
