The family of a New Jersey man who was set on fire by his friends after falling asleep on the couch has shared photos of his horrific injuries.
Raymond Mullen, 27, of Brigantine, suffered third-degree burns over 30 percent of his body on March 15 after his friends, David Sult, 24, and Brandon Perez, 23, allegedly doused him with charcoal lighter fluid and lit him ablaze.
According to his family, Mullen had fallen asleep on a couch at Sult's house because he wasn't feeling well.
While Mullen was sleeping, Sult and Perez 'conspired to do him bodily harm ... without provocation and with no clear justification,' the family wrote on a GoFundMe account.

According to the GoFundMe page, when Mullen awoke 'he was engulfed in flames while others watched and did nothing'.
'He ran to the nearest door to flee his accusers. Outside, another offender laughed and said, "I’ll show you how it’s done, Dave," and drenched his back a second time with more lighter fluid,' the family wrote.
Mullen dropped and rolled in an attempt to put the fire out. He even tried to drive from the home, 'but one of the offenders took his car keys'.
The family said the attacker then threw the keys at Mullen who managed to drive 40 minutes to his mother's house.
