Mom Burns Teen to Make a Point

HARTSBURG, Mo. -- A Hartsburg woman was arrested Thursday after burning her daughter with a cigarette lighter.

Boone County Sheriff's deputies arrested Dusty Hessenkemper after she burnt her 14-year-old daughter with the lighter in response to her daughter wanting to get a tattoo.

The 34-year-old mom thought the burning would simulate a tattooing and make the daughter think twice about getting one.

She was arrested for child abuse and was released from jail on a $4,500 bond.
