BOLIVAR COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - An elderly Bolivar County woman is fighting for her life after hot cooking oil was poured on her as she lay in bed.
Mound Bayou Police Chief Tony Warren says 91-year-old Zelphia Ivory suffered second degree burns over her entire body.
One of three unidentified people at the home on south street called 911 around 4:30 Saturday morning. Ivory was flown to a burn center in Augusta, Georgia.
Police have taken two men and a woman into custody, but no charges have been filed.
Sources tell WLBT that Ivory was burned after refusing to give someone money.
