    CA - Paz Maya Romo, 33, dies after chainsaw attack, Lennox, 28 Sept 2004

    LOS ANGELES – A 33-year-old woman whose ex-husband allegedly attacked her with a chain saw died Monday nearly two weeks after the assault in which she also suffered severe burns, authorities said

    The woman, whose name was being withheld pending notification of relatives, died Monday afternoon at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, said sheriff's Deputy Scott Gage. The woman was attacked Sept. 28 in the unincorporated Lennox area when her ex-husband, Carlos Hernandez Romo, found her with another man, authorities said.

    Witnesses said that the woman's boyfriend ran out of the home naked and asked people to call police. A fire also erupted and the woman came rushing out of the apartment trying to extinguish her flaming clothes.

    With his own daughter calling for no mercy, a man who attacked his estranged wife with a chain saw and set her on fire was sentenced Friday to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

    Carlos Hernandez Romo, 36, admitted fatally injuring his wife with a gas-powered saw and injuring her boyfriend, who suffered cuts to the torso...

    Romo's estranged wife, Paz Maya Romo, died two weeks after the attack in a Lennox neighborhood last year. She suffered cuts on her head and body and was burned over 90% of her body.
