Man who set Waukesha woman on fire found guilty of attempted homicide, arson

WAUKESHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Forty-year-old Joel Murn will be sentenced in October for setting a woman on fire while she walked her dogs in Waukesha last year.

Murn pleaded no contest Monday, July 26, to attempted first-degree homicide and arson charges.

Three other charges were dismissed.

The victim of last year's attack, Amber Fuller, suffered second and third degree burns. She appeared at Monday's zoom hearing.

Court documents say Murn mistook Fuller for his cousin, the intended target of his attack.

Murn's sentencing date is Oct. 25. He will stay in custody until then.
