A woman set on fire by her boyfriend died from her injuries, and now the suspect will face first-degree murder charges.
On November 2, the Broward Sheriff’s Office responded to a suspicious incident at the 4300 block of NW 54th Street in N Lauderdale, where Aniuska Reguisero-Garces, 34, stated she was intentionally set on fire by her boyfriend.
Detectives identified the man as Noe Jimenez-Cortes, 40, who fled the scene before deputies’ arrival and was arrested later in the day.
The female was transported to a hospital for her injuries; however, she died on Dec. 29, and her death has been ruled a homicide.
The investigation revealed that Jimenez-Cortes poured an accelerant on the victim’s body and lit her on fire. He was originally charged with attempted murder. With the death of Reguisero-Garces, the charge has been upgraded to murder. Jimenez-Cortes also faces a charge of arson.
