Judy Malinowski suffered horrific fourth and fifth-degree burns to 80 per cent of her body losing two fingers, both ears and her hair after then-lover Michael Slager committed his unforgivable crime.The 41-year-old monster was sentenced to 11 years in jail on Monday.
But Judy, 33, from Ohio, now unrecognisable from her former self, has to contend with a lifetime of pain, surgery and mental trauma.
She has even been denied the chance to face Slager in court after he refused to challenge the charges against him.
She told NBC4i:
“I never knew that a human being could be so evil. He just stood there and did nothing.The look in his eyes was pure evil.”
Judy endured 16 months of agonising surgery as she battled back from the brink of death.
She still has open wounds on her bottom and back where skin grafts cannot heal the horrendous damage inflicted that August night in 2015.
Evil Slager claimed he accidentally set his lover alight while lighting a cigarette in Gahanna, Ohio.But in truth he had doused her in petrol and set her on fire like a torch.
Judy lost her hair, both ears and two fingers after they melted in the fire.
She can only whisper due to horrendous damage to her throat and can no longer walk.
After 52 operations she still remains unrecognisable from the pretty, confident mum of two she was just a few short months ago.
