How far will you go to discipline a child? A Phoenix couple is under arrest after going too far in disciplining their eight-year-old daughter. The couple is facing accusations that they burned the child with a spoon.
The parents, Alberto Melendez-Baez and Susana Espiru, were booked into the Fourth Avenue Jail last Saturday after the child’s grandmother reported the abuse to police. The parents are now facing four counts of child abuse, one count of kidnapping and one count of unlawful imprisonment.
