WESTON, Wis. (AP) - A Weston man is accused of intentionally burning his girlfriend’s young son.

The 16-month-old boy is being treated in the burn unit at University Hospital in Madison. Authorities say the toddler suffered second-degree burns to his face.

Everest Metro police investigators believe the child’s face was intentionally immersed in hot water. Police were called to a Weston hospital where the boy was initially being treated.
