Posted: Updated:

We're also following up on a child abuse case in Traverse City.

Police were called to the Munson Medical Center emergency room Saturday.

When they arrived they found a 4-month-old boy with second degree burns to his face.

After investigating, it was found the infant was left in the care of the mother's friend.

Robert Floyd was later arrested.

He admitted to police that he sprayed the baby in the face with scalding water.

The boy is currently being treated at a burn unit in Grand Rapids.

We will have continuing coverage on the case tonight on 9&10 News at 6.
