Tahlequah, OK (The Weekly Vice) - Jodi Rock, a 19-year-old Oklahoma woman has been jailed after she allegedly admitted to burning her baby's genitals with hair-straightening iron.
According to the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to Tahlequah City Hospital late last month after a 15-month-old baby arrived to the ER with various bone fractures and burns to his genitals.
Investigators say the baby suffered three serious burns to his groin area. The child also suffered bone fractures in both shoulders, his forearm and wrist.
The child's mother, identified as Jodi Rock, gave deputies several different stories as to how the child was injured.
When detectives questioned Rock a second time, she reportedly admitted to burning her baby with a hair-straightening iron by closing the iron around the child's genitals.
Rock also told investigators that she or her boyfriend "may" have injured the baby's arms by playing too rough with him.
Rock was booked into the Cherokee County Detention Center and charged with felony injury to a child. Her bond has been set at $200,000.
