FRONT ROYAL — A man who attempted to light a woman on fire with alcohol while she was lying in bed was indicted by a Warren County Circuit Court grand jury last week.

Michael Paul Hively, 41, of 3553 Howellsville Road, was charged with attempting to destroy a dwelling by arson as well as malicious wounding with a caustic substance or agent.

According to the criminal complaint, the Warren County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a verbal domestic incident at Hively’s address in February. While responding, another caller advised that Hively set fire to a woman’s clothing.

Once Deputy A.W. Stevens arrived, the woman stated Hively poured alcohol on her and some blankets and then tossed a lit cigarette on the blanket, causing it to catch fire, the complaint states.

Hively stated he was going to kill her and himself, according to the complaint.

Fire Marshal Gerry Maiatico responded and determined that a fire occurred on the surface of the blanket, the complaint states. The blanket was damp and smelled like an alcoholic beverage and a cigarette butt was found on the floor by the bed, consistent with the woman’s statements, Stevens wrote in the complaint.

The woman's hand were burned, the complaint states.

Hively remains in custody without bond at Rapphannock-Shenandoah-Warren Regional Jail. He is due in Warren County Circuit Court on July 1.
