San Francisco Man Sets Girlfriend on Fire During Laundromat Argument

A 22-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder after setting his girlfriend  on fire during a trivial  argument at a laundromat. The argument began when Starr Lamare, 25, wanted to leave her clothes at the laundromat so they could get washed. Dexter Oliver didn't want to do that, and reportedly threw the clothes on the ground. 

Oliver was so angry that he ran home, retrieved a can of gasoline, and set her on fire. According to Lamare's family, "Most of her face is burnt...Just a little bit of hair is still there, but most of her face is burned."  Authorities are currently searching for Oliver, and Lamare is in critical condition.
