Woman accused of pouring hot grease on victim
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A 61-year-old woman is accused of pouring hot grease on another person during a dispute.
Charlene Thompson was embroiled in an argument when she dumped the grease on the victim Sunday at a residence on Hawaiian Terrace in Mt. Airy, court records show.
The victim suffered severe burns to their back and arm, court records show.
Cincinnati police officers said the injuries were visible when they arrived on scene.
Thompson was arrested on a charge of felonious assault and booked into the Hamilton County jail.
At the time of her arrest, Thompson was wanted on two outstanding warrants for criminal damaging or endangering, court records show.
In court on Wednesday, the prosecutor said her bond amount should be significant.
“I’m requesting a high bond as the court is well aware, burns are some of the most devastating, painful, debilitating, long-term injures that someone can suffer," Assistant Hamilton County Prosecutor David Wood said.
The judge ordered Thompson to stay away from the victim and have no contact with her until further advised by the court.
Her bond was set at $15,000 and her case will go before a grand jury on Dec. 14.
