A woman faces child abuse charges after police say she burned her son with a hot iron as a form of punishment.
Tamecha Jean, 32, was arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse following a tip that was called in to a child abuse hotline.
Jean was upset that her son didn't bring home papers from school and decided that he should be punished.
No word yet on whether or not Jean will be able to obtain custody of her son upon release.
