A Longview man stands accused of putting a 10 month old baby in scalding hot, 141 degrees water.
22 year old John D. Montana was arrested earlier this month. Doctors told the Harrison County d-a the baby girl was held at the back of her neck and knees "in a fetal position" and placed in the water.
The DA also said Montana tried to blame the incident on another child in the home, a three year old. The baby girl is still in a Dallas hospital being treated for third degree burns.
21 year old Nicole Michelle Montana was also arrested. She may be indicted for endangering a child by omission.
At the time of his arrest, Montana was under a Child Protective Services supervised safety plan which prohibited him from having any contact with the baby because of "a previous incident which occurred in April," the DA said.
