ANDOVER, Minn. — Anoka County sheriff's officials say a landlord-tenant dispute resulted in critical burns to the renter.
Deputies have arrested the landlord who's accused of dousing the victim with an accelerant and igniting him. Authorities say the 55-year-old man is in critical condition at Hennepin County Medical Center with burns over 80 percent of his body.
The suspect fled from the house as deputies responded to a report of a fire. A statewide alert was issued for the suspect who was arrested in St. Louis County.
Officials say the landlord and tenant lived at the same address in Andover.
