Caregiver charged with burning feet of 2 year old

WTVC reports that Jennifer Vaughn faces aggravated child abuse charges in the case.

"It just looked like her skin was just melting off", Smith said.

The toddler, Kaylee Robinson, was taken to a burn center in Georgia, WTVC reported.

A GoFundMe has been set up to help pay for medical expenses as Kaylee will need several surgeries. She was charged with aggravated child abuse and was being held in lieu of $150,000 bond.

Vaugh reportedly admitted to injuring the child because she "was having a bad day" but after initially lying saying the child was burned in a bathtub.

"She (Vaughn) admitted to what she done", Smith said.


Local police detective Rocky Potter told ABC2 that the injuries were "the worst scald burns I'd ever seen".

Little asked supporters to donate money to help her son and daughter-in-law during this "very hard time".

Vaughn has been charged under Haley's Law, a United States statute that makes the offence a Class A felony and could land Vaughn with up to 80 years in prison. They are going to take some skin from her thigh next week to try and fix her feet...

Graphic photos posted to the page show large red blisters on both of the toddler's feet. "Kaylee is in a lot of pain". "'She is at high risk of infection and could end up losing them".

Smith told Metro US on August 20, nine days after the injuries were inflicted, that her daughter has had two operations so far "but they haven't worked".

He told WTVC on Monday that the burns are so severe skin grafts might not work. "It's not right. There is nothing in this world that a 2-year-old can do, no matter how bad they lashed out at you".
