HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KFSM) -- A mother of a 7-year-old boy and her boyfriend have each been charged with injury to a child.

Authorities said John Terrell, 27, forced the boy to get into a hot shower, causing burns to more than 25 percent of his body. Authorities said Terrell made the child get into the hot shower as punishment for getting a bad grade at school.

After making the boy get into the hot shower, according to court documents, Terrell took him to a bedroom where he spanked and choked him.

Roekeicha Brisby is accused of not taking her son to get treatment until three days after the incident.
