Suspect in NYC torching charged with murder

By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' The man suspected of dousing a 73-year-old woman with gasoline and then setting her on fire has been arraigned on charges of murder and arson.

Jerome Isaac appeared in court Monday with visible burns on his face and said nothing. He was held without bail. His lawyer requested solitary confinement and medical attention and did not speak outside court.

Deloris Gillespie died Saturday in the small elevator of her Brooklyn apartment building.

Surveillance video from inside the elevator shows a man looking something like an exterminator, with a canister sprayer, white gloves and a dust mask. The sprayer was full of flammable liquid. He sprays the woman as she cowers, then tosses a Molotov cocktail into the elevator.
