Murder indictment in Md. burning case

By The Baltimore Sun

A homeless man accused of setting his girlfriend on fire has been indicted on a first-degree murder charge.

Police say 48-year-old Richard Rodola poured gasoline on 37-year-old Pamela Myers on Oct. 23, then used her pocket lighter to start the fire.

Myers died last week at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.

The couple had been living in a wooded area in Laurel.

Another homeless person reported the attack, and Rodola was arrested a few hours later.

He was indicted Tuesday by a Howard County grand jury.
