Police in Pennsylvania said a woman tortured her two-year-old son burning him, at least, fifteen times with a cigarette while her boyfriend watched, laughing.
Nineteen-year-old Anna Russell and twenty-five-year-old Enrique Soto face charges, including aggravated assault and conspiracy.
Authorities said the burns were discovered in August after the boy’s grandmother took him to the hospital. Doctors later told police the burns were administered deliberately over a very short period of time.
A preliminary hearing for Russell and Soto is scheduled on April 19.
