DAVENPORT, Iowa — A 59-year-old Davenport man accused of setting his wife on fire was arrested after he was released from a hospital.

Tom Kuan is charged with arson, attempted murder and domestic abuse.

Court records say firefighters found Kuan lying on the floor of his residence on Dec. 5. His wife, Lyn Kuan, had escaped the house but had suffered severe burns.

Prosecutors say Tom Kuan dumped gasoline on his wife and himself and then ignited it.

Kuan remained in Scott County Jail on Thursday, pending $100,000 bail. Online court records don't list the name of his attorney.
