The man is aged 55 years-old and used to work at a boiler factory in Xiangtan. There’s no word on his motivation, but judging by the location people believe he may have had a grievance with authorities.

A graphic video has surfaced from Yunnan Province showing a mistress being doused in flammable liquid and being set on fire by the man’s wife.

The incident happened yesterday (June 29) at around 7pm in Kunming. Mr Liu, the manager of a nearby tea shop, said a woman dressed in black had come up behind a woman dressed in red and said, ”You seduced my husband!”

The woman in black, later identified as Shi, then threw hot chili peppers into the woman’s face (who has not been identified). Shi then poured gasoline on the woman and set her on fire, as depicted in the video below. It was recorded by the dashboard camera of a nearby car.

There was no fire extinguisher nearby, and when people tried pouring water on the woman the fire only grew in size. After one or two minutes the woman finally lost consciousness.

Shi then drank several mouthfuls from a brown-colored bottle which witnesses said smelled like pesticide, and began cutting herself. She was taken to hospital, and had this to say about the woman she set on fire:

She is my husband’s mistress. She forced me to have a divorce (from him), so I poured gasoline on her.

There’s no significance for my daughter to live anymore, I don’t want to live/I don’t want her to live anymore.

Shi is currently in serious condition and is under constant supervision. Shi’s husband, reportedly a bus driver named Ma, has not answered questions by reporters. The mistress died from her injuries.

Warning: the following video is terrible and horrifying.
