A 15-year-old girl is accused of murdering her 4-year-old brother by putting him in a hot bathtub.
The children’s aunt, Aleisha Harris, is also facing charges after police say she waited 24 hours to get medical care for 4-year-old Jamal.
Clayton County police said the teenage girl punished the boy for wetting himself by putting him in a tub of 155-degree water.
“The reason for it was stated to us that the child had urinated on himself,” Clayton County Police Maj. Joseph Woodall said.
Police said Jamal was burned on more than 40 percent of his body, suffered brain swelling and he had an 80-degree core temperature.
