BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The case of a toddler who was badly burned in July will go to a grand jury.

According to the girl’s mother, Indaysha Chambers, then 2-year-old Leah Lee was burned on 16 percent of her body. The burns were on her head, back and neck.

Chambers believes Lee’s stepmother is to blame for the burns, which she said occurred while she was giving Lee a bath.
