HOLLY HILL, Fla. -- (WKMG/AP) -- A Florida mother pleaded no contest to aggravated child abuse Monday and faces up to 30 years in prison. A judge revoked bail for Sheretta M. Harris, 23, on Monday and ordered her held in jail.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports Harris called 911 in April 2017, saying her 3-year-old son had been burned and skin was hanging off his feet. Dispatchers could hear the boy's screams. Harris told investigators she found the boy in the bathtub with the water running.

A month later, her husband told investigators that Harris told him she became angry with their son, filled the tub with scalding water and placed his feet in. Her husband also said Harris admitted she injured the boy when she yanked him by the arm about a year earlier, breaking one of his bones.
