USA: Parents ‘put tiny baby boy in the microwave’ causing him horrific second-degree burns.

Published

Two parents have been accused of putting their tiny baby in a microwave oven causing him horrific burns.

Derick Boyce-Slezak and wife Mikala, both 22, were charged with felony abuse or neglect of a child by police in Missouri, USA, on Tuesday.

The couple were arrested after taking the little boy, who is younger than four months old, to hospital with a rash on his face.

Doctors discovered the ‘rash’ was actually a second-degree burn and further tests revealed the child had a skull fracture and a brain injury.

Court documents, seen by The St Louis post dispatch, accuse the Boyce-Slezaks of dropping their baby while trying to imitate a TV commercial and zapping him in a microwave.

The parents told doctors the burns were caused by cleaning chemicals.

During a court hearing on Monday, Mikala invoked her right against self-incrimination when asked about the baby’s injuries, the documents say. Derick did not testify.

A representative from the Missouri Department of Social Services said Mikala Boyce-Slezak had earlier stated she intended to testify the head wounds were a result of Derick dropping the infant while trying to imitate what he saw on an advert.

Mikala also claimed that she believed Derick had placed the infant in a microwave and turned it on for a “short period of time”.

Because of the horrific nature of the allegations, both are being held in custody at St Francois County Jail on $500,000 (£370,000) bail each.

Other court records indicate that the couple are of the parents of a girl, who they waived custody of shortly after she was born in January 2016.

The main crust of the petition was because of international deals Farmaajo had signed with neighbouring Ethiopia and Eritrea. The issue of unilateral appointments in the army and judiciary was also highlighted.
