In a deeply distressing turn of events, a woman’s life hangs in the balance after an alleged act of horrific violence perpetrated by her estranged husband. Fiona Halton, the mother of 33-year-old Kirsten Moiler, bravely took to social media to provide an emotional update on her daughter’s condition following the harrowing incident, which occurred on June 2.
In her heartfelt message, Halton revealed the severity of Moiler’s injuries, stating, “Kirsten is currently in a medically induced coma, suffering from very serious burns covering 40 percent of her body.” She further shared the devastating news that her daughter has sustained life-changing injuries and will require extensive medical treatment for an extended period.
Expressing the profound impact of the alleged attack, Halton emphasized, “Her life will be impacted by this (alleged) attack forever.” The gravity of the situation is starkly evident, as Moiler faces an arduous journey of healing and recovery.
The incident unfolded near Moiler’s residence in Mount Helena, on the outskirts of Perth, when her estranged husband, Peter Moiler, 42, allegedly set her on fire. Police responded to reports of a vehicle fire at approximately 6:25 p.m., discovering both individuals at the scene with burn injuries.
Witnesses in the neighborhood recounted hearing Moiler’s desperate pleas for help, as she cried out, “Help me, help me,” in the aftermath of what they described as an explosion. Moiler sustained “serious burns” and was promptly airlifted to Fiona Stanley Hospital in Perth, while Peter Moiler, with less severe burn injuries, was also taken to the same medical facility under police custody.
Peter Moiler was subsequently charged with aggravated grievous bodily harm and appeared in court just two days later, following his release from the hospital. The legal proceedings reflect the gravity of the alleged crime and the urgency to hold the perpetrator accountable.
Expressing her gratitude, Halton acknowledged the support and assistance received during this trying time. She thanked the residents of Mt Helena, the medical response team, and the dedicated staff at Fiona Stanley Hospital, recognizing their efforts as pivotal in saving her daughter’s life. The outpouring of love and support from the community has been deeply appreciated by Moiler’s family.
Recognizing the long and difficult road to recovery that lies ahead, online fundraisers have been established to aid in Moiler’s medical treatment and provide support for her children, who now face the challenging reality of being separated from their mother. Halton acknowledged the immense challenges her daughter will face, stating, “Kirsten has a long, hard road to recovery.” The collective efforts and generosity of those rallying behind Moiler offer a glimmer of hope amidst the darkness of this devastating ordeal.
