RICHLANDS, N.C. - An Onslow County mother is behind bars, after a judge raised her bond.

Deputies arrested 33-year-old Michelle Woodhouse-DeBoyes.    

They say she poured scalding hot water on her 9-month-old daughter.

Deputies say, when she couldn't get the child to stop crying, she filled a coffee cup with the water, then poured it on the child.

In a court appearance Tuesday, the judge sided with the prosecution to increase her bond.

She's facing felony child abuse charges.
