DANBURY, Conn. -- A 31-year-old nanny was arrested on charges of intentionally burning a 3-year-old girl after the child's mother spotted her actions on a nanny-cam, Danbury police said.

The complainant said her 3-year-old daughter had been assaulted by the nanny earlier in the day, resulting in second-degree burns to the child's hands and leg, police said.

When she arrived home after work, the mother said that she had noticed the injuries to her child and the nanny said the child had accidentally touched the hot stove while she was tending to the other children, police said.
