A man previously convicted for murder has been accused of attacking his cousin and her 18-month-old by splashing them with hot oil while they were asleep.
41-year-old Michael Lee Maloney was convicted to a 10-year prison term when he plead guilty to voluntary manslaughter for beating a man to death with a baseball bat in 2000. According to his extended family, the Ohio man is currently without permanent housing.
Maloney’s 20-year-old second cousin and her 18-month-old baby reside in Hamilton. According to reports, he had been staying in her home for a brief time, but she eventually asked him to leave.
