We've posted on dad PALANCO TATMAN and his charming gal pal before. But the media has yet to clarify how or why this girl was in the "care" of her father and his girlfriend. Did he have full custody? Weekend visitation? Where is this girl's mother? Notice that these freaks waited "several days" to get this girl treatment, so it appears this wasn't a short little stay.
INVISIBLE MOTHER ALERT.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A man and his girlfriend have been convicted of abuse over the scalding of his 10-year-old daughter who allegedly was forced to take a hot shower.
Investigators say the girl was treated for burns over about a third of her body.
The penalty phase was scheduled Tuesday in Corpus Christi for Palanco Tatman and Crystal Robinson.
A jury on Monday found Tatman guilty of five felony counts of injury to a child. Robinson was convicted of four counts.
Both could get life in prison.
Prosecutors say Tatman and Robinson waited several days before seeking medical help for the girl on June 15. She was treated at a Corpus Christi hospital before being transported to burn unit in Galveston.
