Mother Of The Year Brands Daughters So That She Can Identify Them

A 23-year-old woman allegedly branded her two children so that she would be able to identify them.

Kayla R. Oxenham was accused of heating up a stick with a lighter and “branded” their arms with it. The two girls are aged 5- and 7-years-old. Medical examiners found evidence of burning on the children’s skins.

The 7-year-old daughter also accused Oxenham of slamming the 5-year-old’s head into a wall for locking the family cat in a bathroom.

Oxenham has refused the allegations and refuses to speak about the events.

She has since been charged with child abuse, which is a felony, this past Tuesday. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
