According to a source, a 23-year-old man is accused of abusing his dad’s girlfriend badly before lighting her on fire inside their Ohio home on Thursday.
Police in Fairfield Township have accused Robbi Robinson, Jr. of aggravated arson and felonious assault in connection with the horrific assault.
Unsettling police body camera footage that WLWT was able to get shows the burned woman pleading for assistance and struggling for breath.
“I can’t breathe! My inhaler’s in the house … I can’t breathe, he knocked my teeth out,” the 50-year-old woman, who has not been named, can be heard desperately pleading.
She informed police that the young man beat her before dousing her in kerosene and hurling a flame at her. The woman is dating Robinson’s father.

Woman Jumps From 2nd Floor to Escape Fire
In an effort to get away, she leaped out the window on the second floor.
The woman was put into a coma after being taken to the hospital with second-degree burns covering half of her body.
In the video, Robinson can be heard repeatedly insisting on his innocence and expressing disbelief that his father’s girlfriend suffered such severe injuries.
“I don’t know what happened. It just went off,” said Robinson, who was seen wearing a winter jacket despite temperatures reaching 80 degrees that day.
When arresting officers told Robinson the woman he referred to as his stepmother jumped into the backyard, he appeared stunned: “Oh, she did?”

“I see one of my neighbors laying in the grass, and she looked like she was covered in dust. So I come running over, and her immediate action was, ‘He set me on fire,’” Williams said.
Robinson’s motivations for the horrific attack remain a mystery.
On a $200,000 bond, he is being held at the Butler County Jail.
