BRADENTON, Fla. – Authorities say a woman has been arrested in west Florida after pouring scalding hot water on her husband's groin.
Manatee County Sheriff's Office deputies arrested 52-year-old Maverna Theresa Turay on Wednesday on a charge of aggravated battery with great bodily harm. She was being held at the Manatee County jail on $7,500 bond.
Authorities say Turay boiled the water and threw it on her husband's groin while he slept. He sustained second degree burns and ran out of the house screaming while a relative called 911, according to a sheriff's report.
The man was flown to a Tampa hospital for treatment. The report says Turay did not give a reason for pouring the water on her husband, but said she had been drinking alcohol.
