PARK HILLS, Mo. -- (KTVI) -- A Park Hills, Missouri couple is accused of dropping their infant son and putting him in the microwave oven. Derick and Mikala Boyce-Slezak are charged with felony abuse or neglect of a child.
Our partners at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch report the injuries were discovered when the baby was taken to the emergency room in April for a rash on his face. That rash turned out to be a second-degree burn.
Tests showed the infant was also suffering from a skull fracture and brain injury.
