EDINBURG Deputies say a woman used a stove top to burn the hands of her 2-year-old boy who wouldnt stop crying.
Claudia Ponce, 26, was formally charged with injury to a child at an arraignment Friday at the Hidalgo County Jail. Shes accused of burning the hands of her 2-year-old son, Osiel, claiming that the child burned himself while grabbing a pot of hot soup on the stove, a probable cause affidavit states.
Deputies responded to Ponces home near the intersection of Mile 11 North and Mile 4 West, north of Weslaco, and noticed the severity of the burns couldnt have been an accident, Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Treviño said.
The sheriff called the incident by far the worst case of child abuse hes seen in his 41-year career.
I cant conceive how a mother could willingly cook the hands of her child by holding them over an open flame, Treviño said at a news conference following the arraignment.
A photograph of the hand shows burns over the entire palm with large blisters and scabbing.
The childs hand was severely burned and had gotten infected, Treviño said.
Deputies learned the boy was burned by holding his hands over an open flame for an extended period of time.
Authorities placed Ponces other five children all under the age of 7 in state custody. Osiel was transported to a local hospital and has been transferred to the Shriners Hospital Burn Center in Galveston. He was released from medical care Friday morning and transferred to a foster family that specializes in burn victims, Treviño said.
Ponce, a native of Valle Hermoso, Tamps., told investigators that she had entered the country illegally, had no family in the U.S. and worked as a prostitute, the sheriff said.

Nothing stops a child’s crying like extreme pain.
Mandatory spaying before deportation should be the law for this cruel cretin who has six children at age 26 and is a prostitute. The state of Texas should not be responsible for this mess and should send the whole bunch back to Mexico.
Would that God had made reproduction a five-step procedure to weed out these defectives who have nothing except fertility going for them.
OMG, the poor baby!! What kind of human would do this? She isn’t human and she’s worse than an animal. Put her in general population after telling the female prisoners what she did. Better than deporting. They will make sure she gets what she deserves.
yep, bet that did it....
When my daughter won’t stop crying I give whatever she wants, plus more.
Spaying, my ass! Beheading!
Having the babies Americans won't have, burning the babies Americans won't burn, screwing the men Americans won't screw...
Actually Americans will do every one of those things so we really don't need someone else to do them... we don't need any fast breeding underclass. Five messed up little children - I hope they go into good homes and heal and grow up well because they're our children now.
Actually that’s six children she has.
One case where I am indeed in favor of “An eye for an eye”. Burn this bitch’s hands, and see if she stops crying.
Only 26 years old and already six children. Well, I could see how she was looking to live our her life.
My mother dragged me over to the stove and made out she turned on the burners. She would then make me put my hands on the burners and hit my hands with the belt. The stove was off but I was too short to see over it. She did this after I dropped a boulder on the neighbor’s head. I had a problem with throwing rocks when I was 3 or 4 years old. She regrets it to this day but it did stop my rock throwing days.
The female prisoners will give her all the pain she deserves. They may be in for committing crimes, but most of them will not tolerate hurting babies.
What a fricken genus ....extreme pain yeah that will stop a child from crying. For her how about room temp.
Oh Lord....I would never be able to go to the Grand Canyon. Seeing the rocks and boulders would bring nightmares. LOL
I threw a rock once and hit a car. The man came looking for me but didn’t find me. He found my mom, she found me and a switch she pulled off a tree. I never threw another rock. Didn’t sit down for a week either.
She was also a ninja with a wooden spoon!
Yes, but augmented with about 10 years in jail and never seeing any and all children she may have again.
Oh, and I have to add that I would be in favor of spaying as well.
Prostitute and LOTS of welfare. So, what do we have here, 5 anchor babies?I recall one Sunday night on the Terry Anderson Show. A woman called in who worked as a nurse in the biggest Las Vegas Hospital. She said that the majority of births were illegals. They would give birth, and some didn’t even try to bond with the baby, no more than you would bond with a credit card. They didn’t want to be bothered with them in their rooms and by evening the room and halls would be full of every adult the woman knew. It was fiesta time!
She said the hospital had become a zoo.
“who has six children at age 26 and is a prostitute. The state of Texas should not be responsible for this mess”
Remember hearing about Parkland Hosp a few years ago?
70% illegal alien jackpot baby births in 2006.
That’s thousands of uneducated, America hating, socialist, poor, gang banging 18 years old who can vote democrat every year. In only 11 more years all those born in 2006 will vote. Then we hear about all the birthing Hotels set up for Chinese, etc. We’ve likely lost this country just by the perversion of the 14th amendment.
None of our esteemed GOP leaders, even Rubio and Paul have addressed that problem. A few in the House of reps have tried over the years but were ignored.
Maybe that’s what the legislators have figured out that we haven’t...that it’s already too late, might as well give them amnesty before they take it.
“Five messed up little children - I hope they go into good homes and heal and grow up well because they’re our children now. “
There was a case in Oregon about an anchor baby whose mother died. Of course, no clue who the father was. The child went to foster parents who wanted to adopt, had him for years. Then a long lost grandma in Mexico decided she wanted the kid...she’d never seen him or made effort to get him until the state said they’d pay welfare for the kid even in Mexico, and that’s where that American born baby wound up. With our tax dollars in tow.
IIRC it went to court, this couple really fought for him, but judges in Oregon are as screwy as many places and children’s services is worse. That kid will be raised in Mexico, get to vote in our elections down there when he’s 18. And you know how he’ll vote.
I'm actually surprised bail was set so high...
Guess they don't have too many liberal wimpy ass judges in Texas...
I remember a Hispanic woman in New Mexico,about fifty two years ago, who tried to potty train her boy by setting him on a hot stove every time he peed his pants.
She was certified as crazy and had her children taken from her FOR A JUST CAUSE.
Some people ARE crazy. I hope the children do alright in foster care. Poor kids.
Yeah, because hurting a child makes them stop crying. :~\
