Dr. Shanaaz Matthews from The Children's Institute at UCT says that 50 percent of child homicide is related to fatal child abuse in South Africa. She tells us why it is necessary to start compiling and analyzing data so that we can move away from this staggering statistic. Watch.WATCH

St. Marys - A Pennsylvania mother is accused of burning her 3-year-old with chemicals, putting him on a leash and keeping him in a dog cage.

Police in St. Marys charged Arwen Kuhn last week with a slew of charges including aggravated assault and false imprisonment of a minor.

According to a police affidavit, the child's dad says he dropped the boy off at Kuhn's house for three days last year. He says when he picked the child up, he noticed a scab on his bellybutton and bruises on his head.

Investigators say they determined the 38-year-old Kuhn dropped the boy on his stomach and burned him with chemicals, in addition to leashing him and locking him in a cage.

No attorney information is available. No phone number is listed for Kuhn.
