Tucson man convicted in 2008 murder

TUCSON - 55-year-old Anthony Lewis is convicted of first-degree murder for setting a woman on fire in 2008.

Pima County prosecutors say Lewis also was found guilty of aggravated assault and second-degree burglary and was acquitted on two other burglary counts.

Prosecutors say Lewis faces life in prison without the possibility of parole when he's sentenced.

Authorities say Lewis had repeatedly violated a restraining order 44-year-old Angela Hudson filed against him in early 2008.

They say he went to Hudson's house, poured a soda bottle full of gasoline on Hudson and set her on fire on September 22, 2008.

She suffered burns on 35 percent of her upper body and died in a Phoenix hospital five months later.
