HOUSTON — A Houston mother facing felony charges after her little boy was burned had a meltdown Thursday in the halls of a Harris County courthouse as she was being led away in handcuffs.

Authorities said Breanna Sauls, 20, put her 3-year-old son in a bathtub of scalding hot water, severely burning him, but did not take him to the hospital until several days later.

Sauls was in court Thursday to see if there was justification of removing the child from her custody. A judge decided there was. At conclusion of the hearing, Sauls was arrested for two charges; injury to a child and injury to a child by omission.
