Police: Florida Woman Poured Boiling Water on Sleeping Boyfriend

A West Palm Beach woman was in jail on Friday on charges of dousing her boyfriend with boiling water as he slept.

Police did not know the motive but said Billie Reynolds admitted pouring the scalding water on Gregory Laughlin earlier this week. Laughlin suffered second-degree burns on over 20 percent of his body and remained hospitalized on Friday.

Reynolds is charged with domestic aggravated battery and was being held at the Palm Beach County Jail.
