A man jailed for 15 years for setting his pregnant partner on fire has had his sentence slashed by a third by Victoria’s highest court.
Yavaz Kilic, 22, doused his partner in petrol and set her ablaze when she tried to leave him. The victim received burns to 20 per cent of her body and the pregnancy was terminated after the attack.
"You want to make my heart burn, now you can burn, bitch," he said at the time.
