DECATUR -- An area man is arrested for burning a toddler with a chemical. It happened at a home on West Harrison Avenue.

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.
