  • A second arrest has been made as part of an investigation involving serious injuries to a toddler in the Village of Bath.
    Michelle M. Campbell, 24, of Geneva Street, has been charged with two counts of second-degree assault, a Class D felony, and endangering the welfare of a child, a Class A misdemeanor, according to Bath-based New York State Police.
    Campbell caused third-degree burns to the child twice on May 20, according to Sr. Inv. Curt Eaton.
    One of the burns was caused by a lit cigarette, and the other was caused by the toddler’s arm being held against a hot oven, according to Eaton.
    Campbell was arraigned in Bath Village Court and sent to Steuben County Jail on $5,000 bail. She is scheduled to appear in Bath Village Court at 3 p.m. Monday.
    Last week, Stephen M. Hoose, 33, of West Morris Street in Bath, was charged by state police with reckless assault of a child, a Class C felony, and endangering the welfare of a child.
    Hoose allegedly threw the same toddler against a chair on the same day, May 20, causing the child’s head to hit a wall.
    The child’s injuries included a fractured skull, subdural hematoma, and retinal hemorrhaging, authorities say. The child is still receiving medical treatment.
    Hoose is also scheduled to appear in Bath Village Court at 3 p.m. Monday.
    Due to the ongoing investigation, state police say they cannot release details such as the child’s age, or relationship to Campbell and Hoose.
    The investigation into the child’s injuries was conducted jointly by state police, the Bath Police Department and the Steuben County Child Protective Unit.
