Man accused of pouring hot soup on 61-year-old wife’s face

A Pennslyvania man was sent to prison Wednesday after allegedly burning his wife’s face with a hot pan of tomato soup following a drunken argument.

Stuart Waterhouse, 55, allegedly heated a pan of tomato soup and placed it next to his 61-year old wife’s face as she was sleeping, then used a spoon to pour some directly onto her face — above her nose and between her eyes, according to court records cited by LancasterOnline and Pittsburgh paper Triblive.

Barbara Waterhouse had fallen asleep on the couch after a night of arguing and drinking with Stuart. Her face was significantly burned. As she was washing her face following the incident, Waterhouse said, “I don’t want to hear anything about this tomorrow,” according to court records cited by Triblive.

Stuart was charged by state police in Greensburg with aggravated assault, simple assault and harassment, and is being held in a county prison on $50,000 bond.
