A man from Oregon put his wife’s hand into the boiling frying oil as punishment after accusing her of not seasoning the fried chicken properly.
Jeremiah Crothers, 34, has already fled by the time deputies arrived at their Clatskanie, Oregon home.
Earlier, Crothers also strangled his infant son by covering the 7-month-old child’s mouth and nose. He only let go of the child after his wife hit him with a frying pan on his head.
Authorities said the woman had signs of burns on her hands while the child displayed signs of strangulation. The wife said the abuse had gone on for weeks, saying that Crothers once threw her against a wall as she cradled their infant son.
