TYLER — The grandparents of a toddler that were arrested following an investigation into burn injuries on the girl’s body have requested a bond reduction. According to KETK, Shelley Walker, 60, and Kenneth Walker, 54, (pictured) have been in the Smith County Jail since March 26 on an injury to a child charge. Bond was set at $250,000 each. Judge Jack Skeen is reviewing their request.
Bridget Walker was severely burned on her feet and ankles when she was placed into a bath tub with scalding water. She was in the care of the two grandparents who were both at their home on Aberdeen Street. The 2-year-old was flown to Parkland Hospital in Dallas Feb. 28, and later released. She’s now in the custody of Child Protective Services.
