Caylin Allise Watson, 23, from Elgin, was charged with attempted murder, two counts of arson and the abuse / mistreatment of bodily injuries to children.
Watson was accused of setting fire to his car while his son was inside. The incident occurred at around 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 17, when parked on I-126 heading west near marker 1.
Investigators said the child suffered severe burns all over his body and was in critical condition at the Augusta Burn Center.
Watson was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries before being taken to prison. He is currently being held at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
Reports state that four observers stopped to help by calling 911 and going out to help the child.
Watson was immediately arrested by officers who responded after evidence stated that the fire might have been deliberately set.
