Gilbert, Arizona (The Weekly Vice) - Jennifer Louise Barnes, a 39-year-old Arizona woman has been jailed after she allegedly tortured and sexually abused her 10-year-old adoptive son.
According to police, Barnes repeatedly tortured and sexually abused her 10-year-old adoptive son - and he has the scars to prove it.
Investigators say Barnes tied together the boy's hands and feet before she forced dog excrement into his mouth and then used duct tape to seal his mouth shut.
Barnes is also accused of using a lighter to burn the boy's penis and then using a tooth brush to repeatedly sodomize the boy.
In another incident, Barnes reportedly burned the boy's penis repeatedly with a curling iron. In both cases, the boy reportedly bled from the abuse.
Medical examiners revealed that the boy had multiple large scars on his pelvic area and legs. The injuries were said to be consistent with the boy's statements of being burned and then sodomized.
Police believe that the abuse has been ongoing since May 2010. During questioning, Barnes denied knowing anything about the boy's scars. Family members have also come out in defense of the woman, stating that the allegations are false.
Barnes was booked into jail on charges of sexual conduct with a minor and child abuse. Bond has not yet been set in the case.
