SAXONBURG, PA - A western Pennsylvania man accused of throwing nail polish on his girlfriend's 7-year-old son then recording him after he was set on fire had a preliminary hearing delayed while prosecutors interview another possible witness.
Defense attorney Gerald Cassady says he may request a bail reduction for 36-year-old Edward Myers. The Saxonburg man declined comment at his appearance Tuesday before a district justice about 30 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
Police say Myers threw nail polish on the boy in the May 25 incident then did nothing to help him after he was set on fire, either by Myers himself or other boys at the home.
Police say the boy suffered third-degree burns on his face and chest.
