ATHENS — A McMinn County mother faces a June 4 arraignment on aggravated child abuse charges for allegedly burning her 8-year-old son with cigarettes as a form of punishment, authorities said.
April Michelle Lee, 30, County Road 50, faces two counts of aggravated child abuse, according to a McMinn County Sheriff's Office news release.
Lee was arrested May 25 and was being held this evening on a $10,000 bond pending arraignment in McMinn County Criminal Court, Sheriff Joe Guy said in the news release.
"The investigation revealed several fresh burns on the child's body, as well as some old burns," Guy said. "The mother confessed to burning the child out of stress and frustration."
The sheriff said an initial report of abuse was made to the Department of Childrens Services by a concerned family member. DCS personnel reported to detectives that Lee allegedly had burned her son with a cigarette for climbing too high in a tree, Guy said.
