Family of burned Indiana woman frustrated with police

Updated:

Family members of a severely burned central Indiana woman say they're frustrated with the police investigation into what they believe was an attack inside her home.

Chad Lyons of Anderson says his 37-year-old wife Melanie has been on life support at the Wishard Burn Unit in Indianapolis with burns over 90 percent of her body from the July 10 fire. He tells The Herald-Bulletin she has less than a 10 percent chance of survival.

Police say the mother of five was sleeping on a living room couch when she awoke on fire about 1 a.m.

Sonya Troub says she believes a jailed man whom her daughter was to testify against arranged the attack.

Police detective Joel Sandefur says the investigation continues and he couldn't discuss the family's suspicions.
