Altus burn victim recants story, will not be charged

Posted: Updated:

Altus, Okla._An Altus woman who said her boyfriend set her on fire and then recanted her story -- will not face any charges. Officials say she's already been through enough.

You'll remember, the woman told police last month that her boyfriend doused her with rubbing alcohol and threw a lit match at her because she couldn't operate a DVD player. She suffered burns on her neck and chest.

Police say they did question the woman's boyfriend but he was never arrested.
