Alabama man poured boiling water down baby’s throat

A judge denied bail for a Alabama man who allegedly poured boiling water down his 1-year-old baby’s throat while he was already out on bail on a separate charge of domestic violence.

Authorities say 23-year-old Eugene Lamont Sneed committed the act of child abuse Sunday while out on bail for a 2020 domestic violence arrest. FOX 17 reports.

Mother of girl left her 1-year-old daughter with her father on Sunday and returned home with her baby’s face “in bad shape”

Niktoria Lett, the mother of the boy named Royalty, told investigators that the baby was left alone with Sneed during the day, and when she returned to her apartment, she saw Royalty’s face “all messed up,” according to FOX 10.

“I walked into the apartment and my whole, my baby face is messed up,” Lett explained. “His whole head, his left shoulder is like ooh!”

Lett added that she could barely recognize her daughter due to the burns on her face.

“I couldn’t even bear to look at her. She couldn’t even keep calm. I couldn’t even maintain my body for real, really. So we rushed her to the hospital and from there her injuries started to get worse,” Lett said.

The doctor determined that the act was done “on purpose” and that pouring the boiling water was intentional

The boy’s mother went on to say that doctors were able to determine the act was done “on purpose,” saying they “said he did it on purpose.”

“Her critical lungs, all critical. That’s how they know it was done on purpose,” Lett said. “They said it was intentional what he did. Justice for royalty! That’s all we want, that’s all we want.”

Royalty is still alive but is currently fighting for her life in hospital, Lett said, saying 19 percent of her head “is burned off.”

Girl is alive but fighting for her life with 19 per cent of her head burned off, mother says

“19 percent of his head is burned off, like this is all gone,” Lett said. “And my newborn baby in the hospital fighting for her life.”

The Mobile County District Attorney’s Office requested that Sneed’s bail be revoked Thursday afternoon, and a trial on the domestic violence charge is scheduled for later this month.

Sneed was booked Friday and charged with aggravated child abuse, according to jail records.

A judge ultimately denied Sneed’s bail. His arraignment is scheduled for October 17, according to Fox News.
