Man gets 5 years for dumping pot of boiling water, grease on woman's head


Anger comes in all different forms, but dumping scalding liquid onto another person and telling them "I hope you die" could get you a good five years behind bars. A deep breath and a long walk might be a better option next time.

Ronald Dean Oakgrove Sr., 42, was sentenced to five years in prison last week for the Dec. 2008 incident on the Red Lake Indian Reservation. He pleaded guilty in April to pouring the boiling water, grease, and beef on a woman's head, neck, shoulders, and arms.

The woman survived, but was treated for third-degree burns.
