WACO, TX (KXXV) -

A Waco woman is in jail accused of having an argument with her 9-year-old son and burning him with a pan she was frying bacon in.  

Someone at that apartment complex in the 1800 block of Primrose saw the boy's injuries and called for help Friday morning.  Firefighters and paramedics responded and then summoned police when they saw the burns.

Lachrisha Patrice Farmer, 34, told officers she was not sure how the boy got burned, but the child had a different story for investigators.  He said his mother was frying bacon and they got into some type of argument and she burned him with the skillet, according to Waco PD Sergeant W. Patrick Swanton.

The boy's injuries on his arms and upper torso were significant, but not life threatening.  He was taken to Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Hospital for treatment. 

Child Protective Services and the Crimes Against Children unit were also called.  Detectives did a forensic interview and arrested Farmer Monday.  Her bond is set at $100,000.
