Day care worker accused of burning 5 toddlers with hot glue gun

Lizandra Cosme 32 was charged with five counts of aggravated battery to a child

A former day care worker was charged on Monday after she allegedly burned five toddlers with a hot glue gun while another assistant stood by laughing during the incident, officials said. Lizandra Cosme, of the Humboldt Park neighborhood, was arrested about 1:30 p.m. Sunday and charged with five counts of aggravated battery of a chid under 13 years old causing great bodily harm, according to Chicago Police.

Staff at Children's Learning Place escorted parents away from cameras Monday morning, but not before some parents told CBS Chicago they heard one child came home with a burn a few weeks ago, and it was then discovered several had similar injuries. It's unclear how severe were the injuries.

Also, 27-year-old Susana D. Gonzalez was charged with misdemeanor counts of causing the circumstances of endangering a child. This allegedly showed Cosme shooting the hot glue gun directly onto the hands and arms of five two- and three-year-olds.

Prosecutors did not provide a motive in court, but did say Cosme said the incident was a blue, and that she had been distraught since the death of her sister in October.

The victims winced when the hot glue was applied, and some whined, a prosecutor said.
