A couple in Missouri, Derick Boyce-Slezak, and Mikala Boyce-Slezak are now in the process of facing child abuse charges for allegedly putting their four-month-old son into a microwave in April earlier this year.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, citing a report from the Park Hills Daily Journal, said Derick Boyce-Slezak and Mikala Boyce-Slezak, both 22 and from Park Hills, were charged Tuesday in circuit court in St. Francois County with felony abuse or neglect of a child.

Doctors determined the infant had a first-degree burn on his left cheek, a second-degree burn on his scalp, a skull fracture, and a small hematoma.

A young Missouri couple was charged with abusing their infant after a hospital visit for treatment of a rash revealed the baby suffered injuries indicative of mistreatment.

During the hearing last Monday, Nov. 27 at the St. Francois County Prosecuting Attorney's Office, Mikala addressed the injury found on the baby's face.

Later, the PC statement says, an employee with Children's Protective Services, stated that Mikala said she believes Derick placed the infant in a microwave and turned it on for a short period of time.

Both the Boyce-Slezak's are being held in jail with bail set at $500,000. In addition to their son, the Post reports that the couple welcomed a baby girl in January 2016, but waived custody of her shortly after she was born. It wasn't immediately clear what led to the couple relinquishing their child.
