Lisa Baywood would throw hot water on her 61-year-old disabled boyfriend when he wouldn’t give her money, Cook County prosecutors said.

Other times, the West Side woman allegedly threatened to “burn his ass up” and would ignite small fires by striking a match near an aerosol hair spray can to “spook him.”

When those scare tactics didn’t work, Baywood, 42, upgraded her sadistic tantrums and actually set her boyfriend on fire in the first-floor apartment the on-and-off couple shared in the 3100 block of Washington Boulevard, assistant state’s attorney Lorraine Scaduto said Tuesday.
