However, the victim took it from him and poured it on herself during the argument – daring her husband to set her on fire together with their house.
"If you want to burn the house down, burn me along with it," the 44-year-old said, according to Berita Harian.
The 41-year-old man reportedly took out a lighter to scare the victim before the tragedy occurred

The woman's husband has since surrendered himself to the police
