CALDWELL, Idaho (AP) — A Caldwell man has been accused of badly injuring his girlfriend's young children last year.
KTVB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2fPdvhS ) that the 25-year-old man has been charged with three felony counts of injury to child, and a possible sentencing enhancement for infliction of great bodily injury in connection to injuries sustained by a 2-year-old girl and a 1-year-old boy.
The investigation began in August 2015 after the suspect brought the 2-year-old child to the hospital with a severely infected wound on her arm. The man and the child's mother told doctors the girl was bitten by a spider, but doctors say the injury appeared to be a burn, possibly from a cigarette.
While the 2-year-old was being treated the suspect brought the 1-year-old to the hospital with trauma to his genitals. Doctors told police the child's injuries were not accidental.
