MARION COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

A Marion County woman was jailed Sunday after deputies say she attacked her husband with a picture frame and computer printer, then tried to "go out in a blaze of glory" by setting their kitchen on fire.

Michelle Diane Fowler Osteen Bedillion, 46, of Dunnellon was in the Marion County Jail, charged with domestic aggravated battery and arson.

Deputies say just before 9 p.m. Sunday, her husband, Carlos, called to report that his wife was hitting him in the back of the head with a heavy picture frame. He said she then threw a computer printer at him, hitting him in the back.

Carlos Bedillion then ran outside their home on 157th Lane and reportedly saw his wife pour cooking oil on the kitchen stove and counters and light it on fire. He kicked in the door and put out the fire as his wife ran out, a Sheriff's Office report states.

K-9 units tracked her to a wooded area behind the home. When asked about attacking her husband, deputies say she told them that "he deserved what he got," and "I was going out in a blaze of glory."

Michelle Bedillion is expected to face a judge soon, deputies say.
