Man Charged With Burning Child

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - A Bowling Green man has been arrested after allegedly burning the feet of his girlfriend's two-year-old daughter.

Twenty-one-year-old Aaron Jones was charged yesterday with first-degree criminal abuse.

An arrest citation says the child's injuries were reported after she was seen at The Medical Center at Bowling Green for second-degree burns to her feet and discoloration to her head and back. The child's mother told police Jones was the only person at home with the two-year-old at the time of the injuries.

Jones told officers he became angry after the girl urinated and defecated on herself. Police say he held the child under scalding hot water and held her head while she screamed. He's being held in the Warren County Regional Jail without bond.
