ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany Minister and the mother of a two year old boy are accused of scalding the child in a bathtub.

Police charged both with first degree child cruelty.

26-year old Justice McClendon, a traveling minister who preaches in South Georgia churches, and 21-year old Christy Davis of Geneva, Alabama are in the Dougherty County Jail.

The child's grandparents in Early County reported the injuries.

This is the Albany home where investigators say the boy was injured.

The Division of Family and Children's Services and Albany Police continue to investigate.
