LAWRENCEBURG, IN (FOX19) -- A man has been arrested for allegedly burning a 4-year-old girl with matches.

Police launched an investigation in July after they received complaints from the Dearborn County Department of Child Services of the girl having burn on her hands and feet as a means of punishment for misbehavior.

A warrant was issued last Friday, Aug. 15, for the arrest of David Munson, 25, of Lawrenceburg. He was arrested Monday morning and charged with one count of battery causing serious bodily injury, a felony.

Munson is currently being held in the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center.
