A woman was taken to a hospital with severe burn wounds after she was attacked by prison inmates.

Trudi Lenon, 43, was locked up in the Bandyup Women’s Prison in Australia, awaiting a sentence for the murder of 18-year-old Aaron Pajich, when she was doused with boiling water.

Lenon suffered severe burns to 30 percent of her body and was taken to Fiona Stanley Hospital for treatment. She is said to be in stable condition.

Lenon from Perth, who is a mother of three children, was found guilty of killing Pajich, who had autism and was awaiting sentencing when she was burned.

Lenon, who knew the victim through her teenage son and her roommate Jemma Lilley, 26, were convicted of his murder.

The court heard that once Lilley checked off her “bucket list” to kill someone, she was so “full of euphoria,” she boasted to her colleague Matthew Stray about the murder.

Lilley also left incriminating voice messages to fellow murderer Lenon. She bragged about the surge of excitement she was experiencing. She said that it was “something she never felt before.”

The victim’s body was found in a shallow grave behind the home the women were renting. The grave was covered in concrete.

Both women are scheduled to be sentenced next month.
