Man charged with burning a child will go to trial

LEWISBURG – A Lewisburg man accused of burning his girlfriend’s young daughter will go to trial after waiving his right to a preliminary hearing in Union County. 24-year-old Stephen Childress is charged with a felony count of child endangerment along with simple assault for the incident in April. Police say Childress put the 2-year-old girl in a scalding bathtub. The child was flown to the Lehigh Valley Burn Unit for treatment of second and third-degree burns. She also had other injuries, according to court records. Childress is free awaiting trial. (Ali Stevens)
