Jeff Wilson, a neighbour who witnessed the events unfolding said: "All I can think about is that house being on fire, and that guy screaming. It's just been pretty bad,"

"You could tell he was burned, bad. He did not have any clothes on, and his skin was just peeling," Wilson said. "You could tell he was hurt badly because he was screaming his lungs out." Mr Wilson said that he was still trying to deal with everything he saw that night.

Before his death, Mr Graham told police that a woman had entered the family home, poured an unknown substance on him and then set him on fire.
