MOUNT VERNON, OHIO: A central Ohio prosecutor says a man charged in a three-count indictment is accused of burning his girlfriend’s 5-month-old son so badly that part of the child’s left leg had to be amputated and he needed skin grafts on one arm.

Knox County Prosecutor John Thatcher says 19-year-old Zachariah Keen of Mount Vernon is charged with felony assault and two counts of child endangerment.

Keen is in jail. Court records listed no attorney for him.

Thatcher says Keen told police he tripped and spilled a baby bottle of hot water while babysitting Jan. 17. Thatcher says authorities don’t believe the child’s second- and third-degree burns were accidental.

The charges allege Keen knowingly hurt the child and failed to seek appropriate medical help for him.

Keen’s arraignment is scheduled Feb. 28.
