A Florida Keys woman was arrested after she threw boiling water on a 14-year-old girl, authorities said.
Nadeige Pluviose, 32, was arrested Wednesday in Stock Island on charges of aggravated child abuse after the teen suffered second and third degree burns on her face, neck and shoulder, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office said.
A witness told authorities he heard the victim screaming and saw Pluviose running from the room where the victim had been sleeping carrying a plastic cup.
The victim was treated with home remedies until someone reported the incident to the child abuse hotline, authorities said. The teen was taken to Lower Keys Hospital for treatment.
Pluviose was being held without bond Thursday, jail records showed. It was unknown whether she has an attorney.
