BENTON, MO (KFVS) -

A Sikeston man was taken into custody after an investigation involving a 3-year-old child.

Scott County Sheriff Rick Walter says Clinton David Burton, 24, of Sikeston was charged with the class C felony of abuse or neglect of a child and the class A misdemeanor of possession of up to 35 grams of marijuana.

He was taken to the Scott County Jail on a bond of $50,000 cash or surety.

Burton was arrested by a Scott County Sheriff's Detective after a joint investigation with the Missouri Department of Social Services Children's Division.

The sheriff's office was initially called to a Cape Girardeau hospital in reference to a suspicious injury to the arm of a 3-year-old child.

The detective says a green leafy substance was seen in plain view in the living room of the Burton residence during a follow-up concerning the investigation.
