Angel Luis Sierra Reyes was sentenced to 25 years in prison for setting his girlfriend on fire. She died two weeks after the incident.

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — A judge has ordered a Puyallup man to spend 25 years in prison for killing his girlfriend by setting her on fire at their South Hill home.

Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist says the death of Maria Bazan was “a horrific example of domestic violence.”

Angel Luis Sierra Reyes pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in April.

Lindquist says Reyes and his girlfriend had an argument about their relationship on May 5, 2014. He got a gas can, poured fuel on Bazan and ignited it.

Bazan ran from the home and a neighbor put out the flames. She was hospitalized but died two weeks later.

Reyes told a deputy that he “blacked out” with anger during the argument with his girlfriend and admitted to setting her on fire.

        Angel, I don’t care if he was a child of the Virgin Mary, what he did was ruthless and evil. He deserves to be put to death in the most painful way possible. By the way, if he was as innocent as you say then why did he have to take anger management classes??? Anyone who would defend a person who abuses women is no better than the abuser. Rest in peace Maria, he can’t hurt you anymore.

    Why wasn’t this POS given life or death??? What he put that poor lady through was pure evil and 25 years is just a slap in the face to her family. Hopefully karma will catch up to him and he will meet with a shank.
