A New Iberia couple is accused of severely burning a 13-month-old infant with scalding water.

The Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office says the boy suffered severe burns across his body and is in critical but stable condition at the LSU Burn Center in Shreveport.

The infant's mother, Chiquita Bell, and Bell's boyfriend, Tristain Bartley, were booked into the Iberia Parish Jail on Tuesday.

Bell was booked on one count each of second-degree cruelty to a juvenile and accessory after the fact.

Bartley faces one count of second-degree cruelty to a juvenile.
