Mom, boyfriend charged with child abuse in West Town

Chicago police charged a mother and her boyfriend with child abuse on the city’s West Side.

Priscilla Forys, 22, and Julian Hernandez, 21, bit, scalded, and broke several bones of an eight-month-old boy, police said.

Authorities also found a three-year-old girl so badly neglected, that she lost weight and hair.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Hernandez is accused of putting the 8-month baby in a tub Jan. 30 with scalding hot water, causing 3rd degree burns to the knees, stomach and feet of the victim.  A similar incident occurred on Dec. 28, police records allege.

Forys, of the 2300 block of West Grand Avenue, was charged with felony aggravated battery and misdemeanor counts of endangering the life and health of a child and contributing to the neglect of a child, police said.

Hernandez was charged with felony aggravated battery and misdemeanor endangering the life and health of a child, police said.

Both children are now in the custody of the Department of Children and Family Services.

Both adults are scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.

    Anyone who would be so evil to harm a child deserves the same punishment right before sending them to prison for the rest of their
    Miserable lives! This is a perfect reason there should be mandatory sterilization!

      Why pray for justice to the same god that caused this in the first place? Do you pray cause you think your god wasn't aware of what happened? Didn't your god make everything, and is all knowing and seeing. Yes? No? Your type of thinking makes me wonder how people are so naive and never think about what they say and believe. Give up on god or Jesus or whoever you think can magically make things happen! You'll live a better life.

        Dummy. You have to realize that some higher being created the life you live. Unless you were hatched and still there was a higher being that created the chicken.
