LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) _ A Lawrence woman accused of throwing hot cooking oil onto another woman she thought was having an affair with her boyfriend has been ordered held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing.

Judith Medina was arraigned Wednesday on charges including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

Police say the 45-year-old Medina threw the oil at 22-year-old Maria Mejia on Saturday during an argument at the apartment of Randy Serrano.

Serrano told police Medina thought he was having a relationship with Mejia, but that he and Mejia were just friends and she was helping his daughter pack for a trip.

Mejia suffered second-degree burns on her upper body and face and tells The Eagle-Tribune (http://bit.ly/HSsNzQ) she is scheduled to undergo a skin graft.
