THOMASVILLE, N.C. — The Thomasville woman who was doused in gasoline and set on fire by her husband is finally home recovering.
Angela Byas suffered burns to 70 percent of her body. Authorities say Byas’ husband, Portugal Byas is the person who did this to her back in October 2013.
Byas has gone through several surgeries during her six months in the hospital. Two weeks ago Byas was able to come home.
“People didn’t think I was going to make it, but I did. I’m still here. I’m still alive,” says Byas.
Byas still has a long road ahead of her. She has doctor’s appointments, physical therapy and daily nurse visits.
