Police say that Jennifer Vaughn was arrested on an aggravated child abuse charge.

Det. Rocky Potter of the Rhea County Sheriff's Office told local media they received a call from the hospital on August 11 about a child with severe burns. The family member said she was having a "bad day" when she used scalding hot water to punish the young child for misbehaving, Smith said.

The girl's mother, Brittany Smith, says the burns were so bad that skin grafts may not work.

Smith told WTVC that her daughter is now home from the burn center but will have to have more surgery.

Smith said Vaughn called her that day, in a panic, saying that Kaylee had gotten burned and asked her to come immediately.

A GoFundMe was set up to pay for Robinson's medical costs.

- A two-year-old girl in Chattanooga, Tennessee may need to have both feet amputated after her babysitter allegedly dipped her feet into scalding water. She was charged with aggravated child abuse and was being held in lieu of $150,000 bond.

The hospital called Kaylee's injuries "sock burns", because the burns on her feet looked like a pair of socks, Potter told the station.

According to NBC, Rocky Potter, a detective with the Rhea County Sheriff's Department who has been working the case, said that prosecutors hope to take Vaughn in front of a grand jury on October 1.

Vaughn has been charged under Haley's Law, a United States statute that makes the offence a Class A felony and could land Vaughn with up to 80 years in prison. "It's not right. There is nothing in this world that a 2-year-old can do, no matter how bad they lashed out at you".
