A mother of two has been arrested and accused of branding her two children with a heated stick so she would know they were her own. Police said Kayla Oxenham, 23, used a lighter to set the stick on fire before pressing it against the childrenâ€™s bodies in order to mark them so she would know they were her own kids. The Port Charlotte, Florida, woman was taken to Charlotte County Jail after police discovered the alleged abuse following a tip-off from child welfare authorities. Aged only five and seven, the children told police their mother did it so she knew they were her children, and so they could have ice cream. Oxenham was taken to Charlotte County Jail on June 17.
