KENNETT, Mo. (AP) -- A southeast Missouri man is accused of assaulting his wife with hot grease, causing burns over part of her body.
The Kennett Daily Dunklin Democrat reports that the 40-year-old suspect is expected to face charges of assault and domestic violence.
Police were called to a home in Kennett Monday morning and found a woman covered with oil. Police say she had blisters covering her face, back and neck.
The victim told police she was cooking with a Fry Daddy cooker. She said her husband picked it up and threw it at her, and the grease hit her upper body.
The woman was treated for burns.
