A southwest Florida mother was arrested yesterday, accused of branding her young kids.
Kayla Rose Oxenham faces child neglect charges. WINK-TV reports that the 23-year-old used a lighter to set a stick on fire, then used that stick to burn her children's arms to identify them as her own.
The alleged incident happened earlier this year, the station reported.
The News Press added that she told investigators that she "forgot how much she loved fire."
Oxenham's arrest report lists her occupation as a medical assistant.
She has been released on $15,000 bond.
