A judge in São Paulo, Brazil escaped death after a furious husband and defendant, José dos Santos poured fuel over her and threatened to burn her to death if she doesn’t declare him of assaulting his wife
Judge Tatiane Moreira Lima was pinned to the ground at a court in the West of São Paulo in Brazil by Santos, who threatened to spark a lighter in his hand to burn the judge alive.
The terrible incident which lasted for 20 minutes happened moments before his domestic abuse court case was about to begin on March 31.
According to reports by the Daily Mail, he arrived at the courthouse at 1.30pm and upon entering the building, he started a small fire at the entrance, managing to evade the shots of a security officer before storming the judge's office and grabbed her around the throat, then poured gasoline over her.
According to reports, Santos bore a long-term grudge against Judge Lima who convicted him of domestic violence in 2013.
