COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) --For two years, Judy Malinowski battled incredible odds and survived burns suffered when she was doused with gasoline and set on fire by her ex-boyfriend.

That battle ended Tuesday when Malinowski died. She was 33.

Malinowski inspired "Judy's Law," the Ohio legislation which increases domestic violence penalties when victims are maimed or disabled.

Ex-boyfriend Michael Slager is serving an eleven-year sentence for arson, but Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien says he'll likely look to have Slager charged with murder.

Malinowski leaves behind two daughters, 9 and 12 years old.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with family expenses.
