RACINE, Wis. - A Racine woman, who prosecutors say was frustrated with the potty training process, allegedly punished her toddler by burning him.

Twenty-two-year-old Myrna C. Staten is accused of holding the two-year-old boy's feet under scalding hot water after he soiled himself.

According to the criminal complaint, the boy's socks were sticking to his skin, causing blisters on his feet to pop when medical staffers removed the socks.
