Charges have been filed against an Alabama man accused of pouring hot grease on his girlfriend while she slept.

Tuscaloosa County police Lt. Kip Hart says the 39-year-old woman is being treated at the UAB Hospital in Birmingham and is expected to survive.

Lt. Hart told Alabamas13.com the victim suffers burns to her face, neck and upper body.

“Her injuries are pretty severe as far as she'll probably need cosmetic surgery to repair, if it can be repaired,” he said.

According to Alabamas13.com, investigators believe McGraw was cooking in the kitchen and poured a half of frying pan full of grease on his girlfriend after the two had an argument.

McGraw was arrested Monday night after he was found hiding in a vacant house.

He was charged with assault and booked into jail on $60,000 bond.
