The victim was treated at Daytona Beach hospital before being transferred to a burn unit in Orlando.
It happened after the couple got into an argument, the victim told deputies. Harper was allegedly mad at the victim, a 34-year-old male, for not providing her drugs when the incident occurred at a homeless camp in the woods outside DeLand, Florida.
Harper has been charged with aggravated battery, as well as a second misdemeanor battery charge for allegedly kicking the victim, who was lying on the ground naked.
Deputies arrived on scene after two witnesses called to report the incident.
