A man accused of dousing his pregnant girlfriend with gasoline and setting it on fire has posted bail in Detroit, Michigan.
Devonne Marsh posted $5,000 bail and left the Wayne County, Michigan jail on Friday after being arrested two days earlier for allegedly setting fire to his girlfriend, who is six months pregnant with twins and over 60% of her had burned bodies, according to Fox 2 Detroit.

Marsh, 41, was released on bail with a number of conditions including a ban on taking drugs or returning to the scene of the crime. While released from Wayne County Jail, Fox 2 Detroit is reporting that Marsh is incarcerated on charges in another county, meaning he is currently unable to walk the streets freely.
Marsh’s bail was set at $50,000, meaning he only had to post 10% to be released.
Marsh’s 26-year-old friend remains in hospital in critical condition and it’s unclear if the babies will survive. She was reportedly too scared to come forward and report the crime, but a lead led authorities to the scene and she is currently working on the investigation.

“How can you do that to another person? I can’t — it’s unimaginable,” Detroit Police Commander Michael McGinnis told reporters. “Just incredibly traumatic injuries. I’ve seen pictures and I just… I can’t imagine the pain she’s going through.”
Marsh has a long criminal record with prior charges including drugs, guns, and assault.
