Dawna Dewane Began Acting A Little Insane - Boy Jumps From 2nd-Story Window To Escape Her Alleged Abuse

Lincoln, Nebraska (The Weekly Vice) - Dawna Dewane, a 40-year-old Lincoln woman was jailed Sunday after she allegedly abused her 12-year-old son to the point where he was forced to jump out a second-story window to escape her.

According to Lincoln police, Dewane's son called 911 around 11:00 a.m. and stated that his mother kicked, choked, scratched, and bit him. She then allegedly tried to suffocate him by holding a pillow over his face.

The boy told detectives that the argument started because she wouldn't let him go to the mall, and that the abuse became so brutal, he was forced to leap from a second-story window in order to escape her wrath.

Investigators say the boy had several marks and scratches all over his body, as well as a bite mark on his finger.

Detectives also stated that when the boy ran to his friend's house, Dewane called him and threatened to crash her car into a semi-truck. She added that the boy's 7-year-old sister was also in the car and then handed the phone to the girl so that the two children "could say their goodbyes" to one another.

Dewane claims that she never put a pillow over her son's face, and stated that she was trying to spank him for cursing. Both children were removed from her custody.

Dewane was booked into jail on charges of felony child abuse. She has since posted bond and has been released.
