A 41-year-old man was arrested by the carabinieri in Vellezzo Bellini, in the province of Pavia, for trying to kill his pregnant partner by setting her on fire. The drunk man last night began arguing with the woman, a 41-year-old Italian, in the second month of pregnancy. First he attacked her and doused her with ethyl alcohol, then set her on fire. The woman, who reported burns on about 50% of her body, was transported in code red to the Niguarda hospital in Milan, where she was admitted with a reserved prognosis, but not in danger of life. The man was arrested and taken to the Pavia prison.
