woman accused of setting man


A woman is wanted in the arson-related death of a man who was lit on fire and killed in a Texas home earlier this month, Houston police said on Monday.

According to the Houston Police Department, Emma Presler, 19, is charged with murder on Aug. 6. She allegedly entered a home in Montgomery County, about 25 miles north of Houston, and sprayed an unknown liquid on the guy before setting him on fire, according to police.

Devin Graham, 33, was flown to a neighboring hospital by helicopter, where he subsequently died.

According to authorities Karissa Lindros 26, another lady inside the house was hurt in the event and was flown to the hospital by helicopter.

The fire in the two-story home was put out, but it left the two-car garage in disarray and charred the outside of the white and black house.

Presler allegedly fled the fire in a white four-door sedan, according to witnesses. Presler may or may not have known the victims, and police have not revealed what led up to the incident.

According to FOX 26 Houston, Presler was suspected of killing a 20-year-old woman in a drive-by shooting last year.

Sierra Rhodd was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, a disease that causes muscle weakness.

At the time of the shooting in September 2020, police and family members speculated that the incident was gang-related and that Sierra’s 15-year-old brother was the intended target.

Presler’s accusations were withdrawn after a court concluded that there was insufficient probable cause.
