DAYTON, OH (WDTN) – An Ohio man accused of burning a toddler was ordered held on bond Thursday.

William Lindsey was in front of a Montgomery County judge Thursday morning for an arraignment on charges of felonious assault, child endangering and tampering with evidence in the case of the scalding of a 23-month-old child.

Police said Lindsey was taking care of a 23-month-old boy in April when the child was taken to the Dayton Children’s Medical Center with severe scalding burns over a significant portion of his body. Investigators said Lindsey is the mother’s boyfriend and not the father of the boy, but Lindsay does have a daughter with the mother.

Lindsey pleaded not guilty to the charges Thursday and is being held in the Montgomery County Jail on $500,000 bond. He will be in court again July 17.
