Jury gets case of man accused of scalding child

SAN ANTONIO, TX.(AP) - A jury has started deliberating the verdict in the trial a former prison guard accused of pinning his girlfriend's son in scalding water after the child soiled himself.

Thirty-one-year-old Henry Benson could face up to life in prison if jurors in state district court in San Antonio find him guilty of injury to a child.

The jury deliberated for about four hours Monday and is set to resume Tuesday.

The child was 3 when he was taken to the hospital with severe burns on his feet and a shin in 2009.

The San Antonio Express-News reports that at the time of his arrest, Benson worked as a guard at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice's Connally Unit in Kenedy.
