A Muskegon Heights man accused of setting his girlfriend on fire has pleaded no contest to assault with intent to do great bodily harm.

Police say 34-year-old Shannon McGee argued with 29-year-old Ayonna Williams Dec. 22, accusing her of infidelity. Police say he punched her, doused her with rubbing alcohol and lit it. She was hospitalized for burns on her face and legs.

Police say they caught McGee Jan. 4 by tracking his cell phone to an attic hideout.

Circuit Judge James M. Graves Jr. is to sentence McGee May 27. A no-contest plea isn't an admission of guilt but is treated as one for conviction purposes.

A Muskegon County jail supervisor said McGee was in custody Tuesday and said he couldn't identify McGee's lawyer.
