FAIRFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WXIX) - Fairfield Township police have identified a woman who was set on fire Thursday, according to Sgt. Brandon McCroskey.

Sgt. McCroskey says officers were called to the 2600 block of Arroyo Ridge on Thursday around 10:25 a.m. and discovered 50-year-old Brenda Scott lying in the backyard with multiple injuries and severe burns on her body.

Investigators discovered that Scott was in the bedroom when her boyfriend’s son, 23-year-old Robbi Davon Robinson, assaulted her and set her on fire, according to a news release from the Fairfield Township Police Department

The release says Scott got out of the house through a second-story window and a neighbor found her in the backyard and called for help, Sgt. McCroskey said.

McCroskey says once officers got to the scene, they arrested Robinson, who also lives at that address, for aggravated arson and felonious assault.

Scott was taken to UC Medical Center via Air Care, where she was listed in critical condition, according to the news release.

The case remains under investigation.
