Police: Abusive man threw oil on wife

A man threw a pot of hot oil on his wife as she cooked in their home Tuesday, police said today.

Ronald M. Pritchet, 45, was arrested Wednesday night after Pritchet's wife called 911.

She said she was making a pan of chicken and bacon when Pritchet became angry and threw the pan at her. He refused to let her seek help, so she waited until he left the next day to call 911, police said.

The woman was transported to a hospital with burns on her face, back and right side of her body. She also had two black eyes and bruises all over her body.

Pritchet was booked into jail for second-degree assault.
