A Delran woman deliberately poured scalding water over the head of a 2 1/2- year-old child she was baby-sitting two years ago, a Burlington County Superior Court jury found yesterday.
The jury convicted Pao-Fong A. Young of the Hunters Glen Apartments of aggravated assault and child abuse for the incident, which took place in Young's former apartment in Browns Mills in May 1989. She was found not guilty of another child-abuse charge.
The child suffered second-degree burns over 45 percent of his body, according to Assistant Prosecutor Brenda Maneri. Maneri told the jury that Young had filled a container with scalding water, then deliberately poured it on the child.
