BRENTWOOD (AP) - The trial of a Plaistow man accused of severely beating and burning his girlfriend's 3-year-old son is resuming with more testimony from the boy's mother.

Twenty-four-year-old Jessica Linscott is serving 2 ½ to 7 years in prison for not getting her son medical help and coaching him to lie to a social worker about his injuries. She will continue testifying Monday against 28-year-old Roland Dow, who is on trial for a dozen charges, including assault, witness tampering and child endangerment.

Linscott testified last week that Dow physically and mentally abused her, and treated her son worse than an unwanted dog.

The couple left the toddler, suffering from a brain injury and burns, at a hospital in November 2012 and fled to Florida, where they were arrested at a theme park.
