Texas woman accused of setting stepdaughter's face on fire

Grand Prairie police said that Dalia Jimenez, 20, was arrested and charged for intentionally harming her stepdaughter.

A suburban Dallas woman has been charged after police say she doused her 5-year-old stepdaughter's face with rubbing alcohol and set it on fire. Police said that Jimenez told officers that the injury to the child had been the result of an accident lighting a candle. But, police said there were inconsistences in her story.

The girl suffered burns on her cheeks down to her jawline, with smaller burns on her shoulders.

"It was about an hour long conversation, but ultimately at the end of that conversation she did confess to me that she had intentionally burned the 5-year-old for yelling previously in the home", said Detective Greg Parker.
