SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - The Homer woman severely burned last weekend- allegedly by a man who was obsessed with her- has died of her injuries.
Homer Police Chief Russell Mills confirms that 47-year-old Lisa Hunter died Friday afternoon around 1:30 at University Health in Shreveport.
Sam Wyrick was arrested after a manhunt on Saturday following the attack and charged with attempted first-degree murder, aggravated battery and aggravated arson.
Mills says he will work with the DA to upgrade charges to first degree murder, which is a capital offense and means Wyrick could face the death penalty.
A vigil will be held in Homer at the Housing Authority known as HUD where the attack took place. The vigil is set to began at 5pm.
