PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A woman will spend the next three years in prison for scalding her boyfriend's daughter in a bathtub.

Judge John Ditsworth also sentenced Kenyatta Gill to 15 years of probation. The sentence was part of an agreement in which Gill pleaded guilty to two counts of child abuse.

Police arrested Gill, along with her boyfriend, Terrell Williams, and his brother, Aaron Alston, in December 2012.

All three lived together with Williams' 3-year-old daughter, who had to undergo skin grafts after the incident. The toddler suffered second-degree burns.

Gill was suspected of placing the girl in a tub of hot water on Sunday night, Dec. 9, 2012, 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 was hospitalized in the Arizona Burn Center.

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

Gill is the first to be sentenced in this case.
