Man who lit his pregnant girlfriend in fire sentenced to 55 years in prison

Justice has been served for a pregnant woman whose former boyfriend set her on fire.

A judge has sentenced Darren Lambert to 35 years for domestic abuse battery by burning. 

He'll serve 20 more years for attempted manslaughter. 

Both sentences are to run concurrent without the benefit of parole. Lambert has the right to appeal. 

Lambert is accused of pouring rubbing alcohol on his former girlfriend Katie Battaglia after an argument, then lighting her on fire. 

She was nine weeks pregnant at the time and lost the baby.
