STOCK ISLAND, Fla. - A Florida Keys woman accused of throwing boiling water on a 14-year-old girl was arrested Wednesday.
Nadeige Pluviose, 32, was arrested on a first-degree felony charge of aggravated child abuse.
Monroe County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said detectives aren't sure why Pluviose threw boiling water on the girl because she refused to speak to deputies about the incident.
The girl suffered second- and third-degree burns to her face, neck and shoulder. She was taken to Lower Keys Hospital.
A witness said he heard the girl screaming and saw Pluviose running from the room where the girl had been sleeping. The witness said Pluviose was carrying a plastic cup. He checked the kitchen and found that the stove was still hot.
