Wash. man who scalded teen girl sentenced to prison

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A 21-year-old Omak, Wash. man who scalded an 18-year-old woman with boiling water and beat her with a propane canister has been sentenced to nine years in federal prison.

The Wenatchee World reports Daniel Quilochin Fry was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty last April to assault with a dangerous weapon and maiming. The charges were handled by federal authorities because the incidents happened in a house on the Colville Indian Reservation.

The woman told authorities during the investigation that Fry abused her over a period of five months in 2011 when they shared the home.

The abuse included locking her in a closet and dousing her with cold water, beatings, choking her, stabbing her in the hand with a knife, and threatening her with a firearm.

The maiming charge comes from Fry forcing her to lie on the floor and then poured scalding water on her legs and back.
