Doña Ana County authorities said a man is accused of setting his wheelchair bounded mother with gasoline and trying to set her on fire.
Doña Ana County sheriff’s officials said 27 year old Johnny Jimenez is in jail without bond on suspicion of one felony count of attempted aggravated battery against a household member with a deadly weapon.
The woman said her son got mad at her after she asked him for help to cook dinner to celebrate her 63rd birthday Monday.
She said her son slammed her head into the washing machine, causing her to fall out of her wheelchair.
He then allegedly poured gasoline on her and unsuccessfully tried to ignite the fluid with a lighter.
