A Washington mother has been accused of scorching her six-year-old son's hands on a stove and pouring salt on the burns as punishment for touching an iPad.
Karina Torrescano Hernandez, 27, was arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault of a child after the boy's wounds were spotted by a school counselor.
Doctors found four separate burn marks which 'indicated multiple contacts, not one' and scars on his head, neck, shoulder and buttocks, according to a statement from the hospital.
Teachers from his elementary school in Lynnwood were first alerted to the youngster's injuries by another student last month. At first, the boy said he hurt himself on monkey bars in the playground, but later broke down in tears and claimed his mother had done it.
