A 41-year-old Detroit man accused of setting fire to his girlfriend, who is pregnant with twins, has bonded out of a Wayne County jail for just $5,000 after posting ten percent of his $50,000 bond, according to a report.
“Police said Devonne Marsh got into an argument with his girlfriend at their Detroit home off Packard and Outer Drive last Friday, Jan.14, and he doused her with lighter fluid before setting her on fire,” WJBK reports.
According to the latest reporting from the outlet:
Devonne Marsh was released from the Wayne County Jail Friday morning. According to documents with the jail, he was released from custody just before 11:20 a.m. on Friday. He’s now out on bond with multiple conditions including no weapons, no drug use, and is ordered not to go to their shared apartment.
However, FOX 2 has learned that Marsh has a hold in Macomb County for other charges so while he’s posted bail in Wayne County, he is not currently free.

At about 10:40 on January 14, Detroit Police received a tip “that a woman was being held against her will and tortured,” according to WDIZ. At the scene, officers said they found the 26-year-old pregnant woman, with severe burns to her legs and stomach, lying on a bed in the basement of the home. Officers said she could hardly move.
The 26-year-old is in critical condition with burns to 60 percent of her body, and “It’s not yet known if her babies will survive,” WJBK reports. She is six and a half months pregnant.
“How do you do this to another human being? I can’t – it’s unimaginable,” Commander Michael McGinnis of the Detroit Police Department told WJBK.
“Just incredibly traumatic injuries, I did see pictures and I mean the pain that she must be suffering – I can’t imagine,” he said.Marsh, 41, was arrested and is charged with “kidnapping/abduction, aggravated/felonious assault and violation of the controlled substance act,” according to WDIZ.
He is a parole absconder with a lengthy rap sheet according to WJBK, including previous charges for guns, assault, and drugs.
“Marsh pleaded guilty in Macomb County Circuit Court to four counts of delivering more than 50 grams of cocaine in 2019 and was sentenced to two years probation,” Macomb Daily reports.
The victim had been too scared to report the abuse she was enduring, and Heaven of Oakland County CEO Aimee Nimeh told WJBK that victims often fear retaliation from their abusers when speaking up.
“Fear is part of the relationship and so absolutely there is fear of retaliation,” Nimeh explained.
She added that victims are often frightened by low bonds.
“The court system can be very overwhelming; the process can be complicated,” she said. “It’s not just that court is a little scary, it’s also that what happens next with that assailant that might be coming out, that might be walking free. How do you stay safe in that situation?”
McGinnis previously said he had hoped Marsh, who ended up making bond, remained in custody.
“We just hope that he remains in custody through the trial process so that the victim can heal without the fear of any kind of retribution from him,” McGinnis said.

Yankees need Clay Holmes to rediscover the dominant form that made him an All-Star
BOSTON — It was here a month ago that Clay Holmes was named an All-Star. The reliever had dominated through his first 38 appearances of the season and it was obvious that he (and his 0.46 ERA) would be making his first Midsummer Classic.
It was also here at Fenway Park that cracks began to show.
He took his second blown save of the year here on July 9 and since then things have been a roller coaster with him. In the 11 games he’s pitched since then, the 29-year-old has allowed 10 earned runs and walked nine.
When asked if Holmes is still his closer, Aaron Boone wasn’t enthusiastic.
“We’ll see. I mean I’m trying to get him in the best positions to be successful,” the Yankees manager said after the Yankees’ 3-2 loss to the Red Sox Friday night. “We’ll keep working to get him right and consistent.”
The Yankees have few options if they don’t.
Aroldis Chapman is waiting in the wings. He’s made eight straight scoreless appearances after a season and a half of struggles. The 34-year-old has been used very carefully since his return from the injured list, where he spent six weeks with an Achilles issue and working on getting his delivery ironed out. He has been used primarily against the bottom of the opposing lineup, against weaker hitters.
Jonathan Loaisiga, who had five saves last season when Chapman struggled, has been inconsistent this season. Their most reliable relievers aren’t here right now. Michael King is out for the season after fracturing his elbow and Ron Marinaccio, who had earned Boone’s trust for high leverage innings, is in Triple-A because of a roster numbers crunch.
Needless to say if the Yankees are to get out of their current downward spiral — having lost eight out of their last nine games, they have to get Holmes back to the dominant reliever he was — whether he pitches in the ninth or not.
Pitching coach Matt Blake said that he had seen signs of progress over the last week.
“There was a little spell there where the command was a little bit suspect with the sinker and you were seeing lower zone rates, lower strike grades, the slot was dropping a little bit. And then we just talked about just kind of narrowing up his base at the set and kind of getting him to just be a little bit more directional as well,” Blake said of Holmes.
Holmes is basically using too wide a stance before he went into his delivery and it is causing him to be “overly rotational,” which results in his pulling or yanking pitches out of the strike zone.
“Yeah, and a lot of times there was like an aggressive rotational move that was pulling them off line,” Blake said.
When Holmes is missing the strike zone it’s a real problem. That was his issue in Pittsburgh, where he had a walk rate of 17.9 in his rookie season. Falling behind in counts basically makes his sinker less effective.
“I feel like I’m pretty close. I’ve thrown a lot of close pitches and competitive pitches, but when I find myself behind in the count a lot, I’m not able to get them to put [the ball in] play and those walks have been hurting me,” Holmes said. “I think it’s just a matter of just getting back to what made me good and when I was doing that, I was being aggressive in the zone early and I think when I get ahead of hitters… they have to swing the bat and make some different decisions.
“And so I don’t know, I don’t feel like I’m far off but again, those walks, they’ve been hurting me. So this can’t happen.”
