According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, authorities charged a Powell woman with aggravated child abuse after she allegedly placed her 14-month-old daughter “into a bathtub of scalding hot water,” a spokeswoman said this morning.

Sarah Julian, 21, of Stanley Road, was being held today in jail in lieu of $200,000 bond, according to Knox County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Martha Dooley.

Dooley said the KCSO was alerted at 7:15 p.m. Sunday of the incident. Julian allegedly had put her daughter into a tub Sunday night at her residence and then took the burned toddler to East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.
