A Florida woman is facing child abuse charges after she allegedly tossed boiling water on her 2-month-old infant’s father as he laid with the baby on a bed.

In a report released on Tuesday,  authorities in Gainesville announced that the little boy sustained second- and third-degree burns to his chest and arm, which make up approximately 5% of his body.

The suspect, 22-year-old Yva Monord, is facing charges of aggravated child abuse and aggravated domestic battery, News4 Jacksonville reported.

Winsky Perpignan, the baby’s father suffered from second- and third-degree burns over his chest, face, neck, and arm, spanning 20% of his body.

“His first reaction was that there was a pot of boiling water on the side table that was used for sterilizing bottles, he thought he accidentally knocked it over on himself,” said Gainesville Police Department spokesman Officer Ben Tobias.

“A parent would want to know where your child is at all times and in the heat of the moment, to not think your child is in the bed is horrible judgment,”  Tobias said.

The report indicates that the couple had an “off and on” relationship and that Monord informed investigators she was angry over “infidelity issues.”

Monord remains in custody and it’s unclear whether she has retained an attorney.
