A woman who grew up in Maine is now fighting for her life after a potentially deadly attack, allegedly at the hands of her husband.

What Happened?

Anna Letalien Willis graduated from Livermore Falls High School with her twin sister Laura, in 1999, and has been living most recently in Alabama with her husband. She's now in a hospital in Birmingham, Alabama, fighting for her life after a vicious domestic violence attack.

Anna was sleeping on August 8th in Decatur when she was doused with an ignitable fluid and lit on fire. According to a Go Fund Me page set up by her sister, Christy Mitchell, Anna sustained 3rd degree burns over 50% of her body and was taken to the burn unit in Birmingham. She's spent time in a medically induced coma and has started receiving painful physical therapy. Anna's family is with her, including her children.

Was Her Husband Arrested?

According to WBMA-TV in Alabama, her husband, Riley Willis now faces multiple charges including 1st degree domestic violence, 1st degree assault, and 1st degree arson. It was Anna's adult son who saved her life, running from his nearby apartment when he heard her scream.

The Go Fund Me page has been set up to help cover the costs of Anna's mounting medical costs and her family's expenses, as they stay by her side.
