AZ Couple Arrested: 4-Year Old Child scalded by Hot Water 13 Days Earlier, Placed in Closet

An Arizona couple is behind bars after their 4-year-old child was found with second degree burns on 8 percent of his body, according to authorities. Officers in Mesa were called to investigate after Child Protective Services received reports of a boy with serious burn injuries at the family’s home. When officers arrived at the home, the child’s parents, Aaron Duron Roland and Joscilin Camile Smith reportedly told police the boy was not home, but was staying with a relative. Officers continued to question the parents until they eventually led police to the victim, who was hidden in a bedroom closet.
