BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. (AP) — A woman accused of dumping hot cooking oil on her sleeping husband has been charged with murder, and the FBI has joined the search for her.
Sherman Sanders died Friday after a week in the burn center at the University of South Alabama in Mobile. He had suffered third-degree burns over more than half of his body.
Investigators said his wife, Edna May Sanders, 45, fled their home in Diamondhead with their two children on July 28.
