In case you don't remember the father of this child remained in jail because he neglected to register as a child sex offender........something the mother doesn't deny but says isn't exactly as is stated in court documents. That doesn't matter. He still didn't register! And she has had other children with this man since he was charged. She also stated in previous reports that she asks her six year old everyday if she has been touch by him. Wow!
Parents Allegedly Placed Child On Stove
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - Police have taken the stove top from the home of two parents who allegedly placed their 1-year-old child near an ignited burner, where they say, she was burned.
Justin Jones and Julia Tomlin were charged with felony child neglect after police say they failed to seek medical attention for their daughter. The stove top--four heating elements and four drip trays--were taken for analysis.
The child suffered burns on her back, shoulders, and arms.Police went back to the Misty Harbor Apartments and a building off Woodall Court, where the girl was allegedly burned on April 30. Detectives were called days later to meet Child Protective Services at the home and said she had burn marks on her back "consistent with the heating elements on a stove."
Police contend the parents, Justin Jones and Julia Tomlin, placed the girl on the stove while they tended to another one of their five children. They say the toddler fell on one of the burners and was burned.
After the discovery was made, the girl was taken to a local hospital, treated and released.
In charging documents a detective wrote about Tomlin saying "she could not say for sure if the burners were turned off or not."
Neither Tomlin nor Jones could be reached for comment.
The little girl, along with her four siblings, who showed no signs of abuse, were placed in the care of Child Protective Services.
