PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A 3-year-old girl is undergoing skin grafts after she was found suffering second-degree severe burns at her Phoenix home, court documents stated.

Police arrested her father, Terrell Williams, 28; his girlfriend, Kenyatta Gill, 31; and Gill's brother, Aaron Alston, 25. All three live in the home where the incident happened, documents said.

Gill is suspected of placing the girl in a tub of hot water on Sunday night, Dec. 9, after the child had urinated in her clothing, court documents stated. Gill said she turned on the hot and cold water, according to documents. Gill said she may not have turned the cold water on enough, documents said.  

Williams said he heard the girl screaming for seven or eight minutes before going into the bathroom to check on her, documents said.

Williams decided to treat the burn himself with pain medication, gauze and antiseptic spray, according to documents.  

Alston said he was aware of the burn and that the girl was in bed on Monday and Tuesday with chills and required assistance with eating and going to the bathroom, court documents stated.

The child's father said he did not call 911 for several days until the victim's skin began to peel off and blister, documents stated. Williams said they decided to take her to the hospital on Dec. 12.  

The victim has been hospitalized in the Arizona Burn Center.

Williams, Gill and Alston were booked into jail on suspicion of child abuse.
