'The Baby Was Shuddering in Pain'


GREENSBORO, N.C. — Greensboro Police say a mother is behind bars, accused of intentionally burning her two-month-old daughter. 

22-year-old mom Loretta Ford faces felony child abuse charges. Arrest documents state her child suffered second and third-degree burns on the bottoms of both feet Tuesday night.

But neighbors, who witnessed the alleged abuse and saved the baby, say it was 'unimaginable.'

"When I looked over there {on Ford's porch} I seen her with a lighter," neighbor Kim Nelson said. "She had a lighter in the baby’s face like she was trying to light the baby’s face but I don't think it ever touched."
