(WSB Radio) Athens-Clarke County police have sworn out a new warrant against the man who set his girlfriend on fire.

42 year old Elisa Davenport died over the weekend at the burn center in Augusta.

Philip Scruggs, 49, was already in custody, charged with aggravated assault and arson. Those charges will now be upgraded to murder.

Police say Scruggs doused Davenport with kerosene and set her on fire at the Bethel Midtown Village on August 17.

Investigators say Davenport was trying to end their relationship.

She probably shouldn't have tried to end their relationship.

Something about charging a person with arson when they actually set another human on fire sounds kind of bizarre to me. I hope the dude gets a really nice boyfriend in prison. When he tries to end that relationship he'll see what it feels like to cross a badazz.
