D.C. strip club manager dies from 2007 fire injuries
A Washington strip club manager who was doused with gasoline and set on fire nearly three years ago has died.
Vladimir Djordjevic had been in the hospital since November 2007 with critical burns to 90 percent of his body. Police say the 28-year-old died early Monday.
Djordjevic underwent dozens of painful surgeries. He testified from his hospital bed during the trial of the man who burned him at the Good Guys Club.
Vasile Graure of Phoenix was convicted of assault and arson in 2008 and was sentenced to 30 years in prison.
Graure, a Romanian citizen working as a trucker, was thrown out of the strip club when he took pictures of a dancer. He returned with a can of gasoline to burn down the club.
Police say Graure could now face murder charges.
