A 41-year-old Palatka man who doused his first wife with lighter fluid and set her on fire two years ago was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison.
Khalid Abeljawwad Mohd was found guilty in June of various charges related to the attack on Rema Jamel in March 27, 2010 after she asked him to help extend her visa.
"Mohd told her he would not help her and that he intended to bring his second wife from Jordan, where it is legal to have multiple wives, to live in Palatka," the State Attorney's Office said in a statement.
Mohd then told her she could not take her children with her back to Jordan and he threatened to kill her and bury her in the back yard, the statement said.

The government sees nothing wrong in this disgusting Islamic culture, but let Dan Cathy say he favors biblical marriage, and he is denounced by Democrat officials and treated as an infidel.
Awfully culturally insensitive of the State’s Attorney to object to this poor man’s cultural norms...
Let’s all just hope that he gets a cellmate called “Big Eddy” who is a sexual predator. Sadly, the taxpayers will have to pick up the tab for his incarceration for many years. A bullet would have been more fitting!
I’m not trying to be insensitive; but this type of article really burns me up.
Don’t you just love Islam?
Oh, before setting fire to her, he had the poor woman lugging wheelbarrows of dirt from the front yard to fill in a swimming pool in the back yard. When he got mad at her because she wasn’t getting it done fast enough, he told her he was going to kill her and bury her body there.
She was obviously too terrified and also culturally conditioned to fight back or seek help.
