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. Pembroke Pines police allege Jean, a mother of three, burned her 9-year-old son on the chest as punishment for forgetting paperwork at school. Police called the alleged abuse "more of a form of torture" than a punishment.
