Husband In Houston Charged In Wife’s Burning Death

HOUSTON (AP) — A Houston woman has died from burns she received in a bizarre January incident — and police have upgraded the charges against her husband to murder.

Susan P. Harper, 53, died Monday at Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston. On Jan. 23, witnesses reported seeing Harper on fire and running near vehicles in a parking lot along the city’s Robertson Street.

Those nearby helped put out the flames on her body and called police.

Investigators later determined Harper had been the victim of domestic violence. They charged her husband, Darryl Wayne Tindol, with aggravated assault of a family member.

Police said Thursday that Tindol had now been charged with murder in the 208th State District Court.
