BALCH SPRINGS (CBSDFW.COM) - Balch Springs Police have arrested a 29-year old man in the burning of a 3-month-old boy.

Roger Franco is the boyfriend of the baby’s mother, and he’s accused of running hot water over the baby who suffered third degree burns over 50 percent of his body.

It happened Saturday night, but the couple didn’t take the baby to Parkland hospital until the next morning, after the baby woke up screaming.  Doctors say the baby will need skin grafts.

Franco is from Honduras.  He is being held in the Dallas County Jail on Injury to a Child charges.

Police say the baby’s mother was not home at the time the baby was burned and is not facing any charges at this time.
