SCALDED GIRL IN GOOD CONDITION

A 3-year-old Loepere St. girl whose father allegedly scalded her Friday, was listed in good condition Saturday night at Children's Hospital.

Andrea Garey was unconscious and burned over 75 percent of her body when rescue personnel arrived at her home. Her father, Jerry L. Garey, 34, is charged with second-degree assault and endangering the welfare of a child.

Police said Andrea had urinated on a couch at her home and was then set in a bathtub of scalding water by her father. He was charged with a similar crime nearly 10 years ago when he allegedly inflicted a similar punishment on his son.
