A woman who deputies say was severely burned by her ex-boyfriend last summer has died.

The ex-boyfriend now faces murder charges.

Clarence Pergerson is accused of pouring flammable liquid on Genevieve Faye, and lighting her on fire last June.

Bernalillo County Sheriff’s deputies told KOB Eyewitness News 4 that Faye died Thursday.

Pergerson was arrested a few days after the incident. He has been in jail ever since.
