A Ohio woman who had been doused with gasoline and set on fire by her boyfriend was denied the opportunity to tell jurors what lead to that horrific event which have left her in ICU 18 months after she was attacked.
As an alternative, Malinoski decided to summon the media to where she is hospitalized to tell everyone about how she has been dealing with the pain the man she once loved caused her.
Judy Malinowski ex-boyfriend was charged with aggravated arson, felonious assault and possession of criminal tools after he was apprehended for the 2015 attack.
Michael Slager, 41, has recently plead no contest to his charges, which basically means that he does not acknowledges he has committed a crime or nor does he dispute the charges.
Slager was nonetheless found guilty for his atrocious crime and was sentenced to a maximum of 11 years at an Ohio state prison.
Malinowski injuries are so severe she has remained in the intensive care unit for the past 18 months. She was looking forward to testifying against Slager but Monday’s plead deal ruined her plan.
But Malinowski, 33, was determined to tell her story and so she contacted the station WSYX and told her story about that horrific attack which changed her life a year an half ago.
Malinowski recalls the look of “pure evil” on the face of her then boyfriend while he poured gasoline all over her body behind a gas station located in Gahanna, and then setting her on fire that dreadful evening of August 2, 2015.
“I never knew that a human being could be so evil. He just stood there and did nothing,” She states.
Throughout the whole court process Slager defense has been that he accidentally set Malinowski on fire when he was trying to light up a cigarette. His defense attorney claims his client also suffered very bad burns in his attempt to extinguish the flames.
“There’s nothing to say to a person like you, Mr. Slager. You really do seem like one of those people who have no soul,” Judge Judy Lynch told the defendant.
The attack on Malinowski life left the mother of two without two fingers, melted both her ears, and was severely burned in 80 percent of her body, unable to walk, and a ventilator helps her breath.
Malinowski has expressed that no human being should ever have to experience the pain she is now suffering.
She insisted Slager’s sentence does not fit the crime but that she only agreed to the no contest plea with the condition that murder charges would be filed against Slager if she was to die from her injuries in the future.
“He got off esay,” She stated.
