PHOENIX, AZ (WCMH) – An Arizona man is facing charges for allegedly setting his ex-girlfriend on fire and killing her after she asked him to take a paternity test.
According to court records, Antwaun Ware was with Jasmine Dunbar, 21, Tuesday night in a car. Dubar asked ware to take a paternity test after the recent birth of her daughter, Arieal. The documents say Ware beat Dunbar and dumped her in a field.
He left Dunbar’s daughter on the side of the road before going back to where he left Dunbar. Ware then doused Dunbar in gasoline and set her on fire with a lit cigarette.
It’s a horrific crime that has left Dunbar’s mother, Tonya Smith, devastated.
“Honest to God, I thought I would die before all my kids,” Smith told KTVK. “I never thought I would feel this, ever.”
Smith is shattered and said Ware is a coward.
“Why would you go back? To kill her? For what? Because she asked you to take a DNA test?” Smith asked.
Ware is charged with homicide, kidnapping and child abuse.
