HOUSTON -

A Houston woman is accused of using a griddle to burn a boy as a form of punishment.

Alma Burgos, 39, is charged with injury to a child.

According to court documents, the mother of the boy accused the boy, 8, of stealing a PlayStation gaming console.

To discipline the boy, investigators said Burgos, the mother's girlfriend, held both of his hands down on a hot griddle.

Although this happened on December 19, 2012, Burgos was just recently charged after the boy was interviewed during his mother's abuse trial in September.
