A distraught South Allentown woman who set herself aflame in a gasoline-soaked carpet Sept. 1 died yesterday from the burns.

Kathryn M. Bachert, 54, made the suicide attempt in the garage at her 975 W. Wyoming St. home. Once on fire, she ran to her yard, and the fire burned itself out.

Lehigh County Coroner Wayne Snyder ruled the death a suicide from second- and third-degree burns and complications. She died at Lehigh Valley Hospital Center.

Bachert was the wife of Charles J. Bachert Sr.
