AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) — An Avondale mother is facing charges for allegedly burning her 3-year-old daughter with hot food.
Police say 35-year-old Katia Lieutaud was arrested this week after a case manager with Child Protective Services called police to report receiving an anonymous call about scars on the girl’s face.
A police report says the child suffered second-degree burns and had scars and scabs on her face after not getting medical treatment.
Police say Lieutaud eventually admitted to getting frustrated with the girl and shoving hot food in her face.
The pregnant woman is facing charges of child abuse and failure to report neglect, and police say all six of her children are now in foster care.
