A Wisconsin man allegedly set his wheelchair-bound sister on fire, killing her, WISC-TV reported.

Nasif Salaan Hibbler, 30, walked into a police station on Saturday and allegedly said “I just set my sister on fire,” police state.

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, officers went to Hibbler’s home and found that it was on fire, with a woman inside who died in the flames. The woman, 35-year-old Shakira Hicks, Hibbler’s sister, had cerebral palsy and could not leave her wheelchair.

Hibbler doused his sister with isopropyl alcohol before lighting the flame, police reportedly said. He allegedly admitted to the homicide, claiming that he had been hearing voices.

“'Peoples' voices' began to talk to him, telling he better do something or they were going to kill him,” a complaint said, according to WISC-TV. “He further indicated that famous rappers were attempting to sexually assault him through the couch he was sitting on.

“He went to (a) bathroom and grabbed a full bottle of rubbing alcohol and set it on the kitchen counter,” the complaint continued. “He stated that he wanted to see that if he showed ... that he was willing to use the rubbing alcohol, the ‘people’ would stop talking to him.”

Hibbler was charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the death.
