Bond denied for Florence man charged with intentionally burning his wife
Florence, S.C. (WPDE) —
Bond was denied for a Florence man charged with intentionally burning his wife.
A magistrate court judge denied Charles Durell Nethercutt, 32, Wednesday in a court hearing.
Nethercutt, 32, is charged with the attempted murder of his wife after deputies said he poured gas on her and set her on fire.
He has been sought by police since Sept. 19 when deputies got to a home on Longfellow Drive in Florence and found Amanda Brillhart Nethercutt inside being treated by EMS, according to a police report.
The report says she was able to tell them her husband poured gasoline on her from the jug they used for the lawn mower and then lit it.
It says she suffered severe burns over a large portion of her body and was transported for treatment.
The report goes on to say Nethercutt had left the home with the couple's 14-month-old son in his wife's 2009 silver Mazda. Florence County Sheriff's Office Major Michael Nunn said back in September that the child is now with a relative and okay.
The report says there was black soot in the master bedroom. It says there was also a lighter laying on the floor in the middle of the burned area.
A gas can that is believed to have been used in the incident was located inside the garage, according to the report.
Nethercutt remains in the hospital and could be there for quite some time.
