A 14-month old was taken to the hospital with severe burns. At first, 23-year old Cory Patterson told police the child was burned by hot water, but then admitted to spraying oven cleaner on the child.
The baby is at a Springfield hospital with second-degree burns from the top of the back to the lower abdomen.
