Crime & Safety

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – A judge has pushed back the hearing for Barry Wright, who is accused of setting a woman’s car on fire last month, at the request of the state.

The 57-year-old was arrested last month for aggravated battery. Officials say the victim, Catherine Glyn-Jones, was at a red light on E. 63rd St. when her car suddenly caught fire. Jones suffered burns to 50 percent of her body.

She was taken to Augusta for treatment. As of Monday, it’s unclear how she’s doing.

Wright will wait another two weeks before heading to court.
