    A Massachusetts man police say poured gasoline on his pregnant girlfriend and threatened to set her on fire has been charged with attempted murder.

    Firefighters responded to the scene at 7:30 a.m. Sunday, where they learned the man had poured gasoline all over his girlfriend and throughout the apartment.

    The woman was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
