Woman Gets Life In Prison For Setting Store Clerk on Fire

February 8, 2024

On Wednesday, an Escambia County woman was sentence to life in prison  to attempted first degree murder for setting a store clerk on fire.

The charge stems from an incident at a Circle K on North W St. on March 30, 2022, where McFadden poured gasoline on a store clerk and set her on fire.

Life in prison, as imposed by Judge Linda Nobles, was the maxium allowed setence.

    I used to frequent that store. I had several meet/greet conversations with the victim/clerk. She is a good woman and by no means deserved what happened to her. I don’t know what sort of possible mental issues this felon has, if any. A life sentence can mean as little as 7 years. As she has proven herself to be a menace, I hope the sentence means a minimum of 20 years.

    Did she ever show remorse for what she did?
    Also what type of monster takes it upon themselves to be so offended when asked to LEAVE that they get a container of gas and throw it on someone and lit it?
    Zero impulse control and anger lead to this and she is to blame for all of it.
    Her worthless life will still continue with only her actions dictating where and how.
    But the person that was burnt now has to live with what this monster did and bare the pain for life.

    Glad to hear she won’t be able to harm anyone else.
