INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - New details are emerging in the investigation of a toddler who was severely burned while at day care.
According to the probable cause affidavit, Irene Martin, the woman charged in the case, admitted to police that she lied about how the 2-year-old had been scalded in hot water.
She first told detectives the boy had fallen into a bathtub with water. She later recanted that statement saying that she placed the young child in a utility sink in garage with the faucets running. She told police she left for two minutes and when she came back she saw steam coming from the sink.
She stated she did not pull the boy out of the sink but rather turned off the hot water and kept the cold water running. She said she didn’t think the boy was injured. She left him in the cold water and gave him some milk to drink.
Martin’s 5-year-old daughter told police that her mom was mad at the boy because "he wouldn’t go potty." She told investigators that her mom carried the boy into the garage because that’s where they go when they’re in trouble. She said the boy was crying and that “mommy was yelling at him.”
The daughter demonstrated with a doll how Irene Martin was carrying the boy forcibly by the wrists and ankles to the garage.
