MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Minneapolis man is charged with attempted murder and assault after he allegedly strangled his girlfriend and set her on fire.
    
The criminal complaint says the woman escaped and drove herself to the hospital while her hair and body were still smoldering. She's now in a medically induced coma after Monday's attack.
    
Prosecutors charged 46-year-old Richard Bullock on Wednesday. Court records do not list an attorney to comment on his behalf.
    
According to the complaint, a woman who saw the attack says Bullock and his girlfriend were drinking and arguing in an RV when he began punching her and strangling her repeatedly, causing her to pass out multiple times. He then doused his girlfriend with rubbing alcohol and lit her on fire, engulfing her in flames.
