A Pittsburg County mother faces charges of child abuse by injury for using gasoline to try and kill lice.
Court records show in January Shana Suggs poured gasoline on her five-year-old daughter’s hair in an attempt to kill lice. A nearby space heater then ignited the gasoline. The child suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns over 60% of her body.
Suggs could face up to life in prison if convicted.
