A 3-year-old boy from St. Clair County is in protective custody after his stepmother allegedly scalded him with hot bath water.

State’s Attorney Brendan Kelly says Brianna Sengleton is charged with aggravated battery of a child after the boy was dipped in the hot bath.

The child sustained first and third degree burns to his legs, behind, and genital area. He was put in protective custody after his father allegedly made no attempt at medical attention.

The investigation is ongoing.
