Police: Rochelle woman set ex-boyfriend’s minivan on fire

AURORA – A Rochelle woman was arrested in Geneva on Tuesday morning after, police say, she set her ex-boyfriend’s car ablaze following an argument.

The Daily Herald reports that 53-year-old Otilia Delatorre is accused of setting fire to her 47-year-old ex-boyfriend’s 2005 Chrysler Town and Country minivan about 11 a.m. after an argument between the two became physical, and he left her alone inside the van.

She then doused the van in flammable liquid and set it on fire while she was inside, later driving away in her own car, the Daily Herald cites police reports as saying.

The Daily Herald reports that police say Delatorre was arrested while driving in Geneva, and that when police pulled her over, she had suffered burns on her torso, and
her clothing was charred.

She is charged with arson, criminal damage to property, and two counts of domestic battery.
