A Warren County man has been sentenced after setting a woman on fire last year.

Samuel Purvis Coley was sentenced to 15 years with 10 to serve in the Mississippi Department of Corrections by Judge James Chaney. He pled guilty to aggravated assault domestic violence.

Liam Walker was the lead prosecutor on the case.

The incident happened in August 2022 where the female victim suffered from burns.

“It appears that he poured rubbing alcohol on her and set it on fire,” Sheriff Pace said back in August.“She suffered burns on her shoulder, upper body, and legs and was treated by the emergency department for most of the day.

After leaving the Warren County Jail, Coley will be in MDOC custody.
