Nampa woman accused of intentionally scalding someone, causing serious injury

A 27-year-old Nampa woman is accused of intentionally burning a person with scalding water, causing serious injuries.

Nampa police reponded to a business in the 300 block of 16th Ave. N. about 6:15 a.m. Friday and found a burn victim there. The victim, a 30-year-old Meridian resident, had been scalded by water at a nearby residence and fled to the business, police said.

The victim was transported to an area hospital, police said.

Officers went to the reported site of the scalding, a home in the 500 block of 18th Ave. N., and talked to residents of the house.

They subsequently arrested Marlo Shamblin on suspicion of felony aggravated battery causing bodily harm. She remained in the Canyon County jail Friday evening.

Investigators believe Shamblin intentionally inflicted injuries on the victim during an altercation at the residence.

Further information about the incident or the victim was not available Friday evening.
