Depraved Mom Allegedly Branded Her Daughters Like Livestock Just So Everyone Would Know They Were Hers

Sometimes Florida’s most unbelievable crimes make you laugh and sometimes they make you cry. You might need you Kleenex after hearing about the allegations against 23-year-old Kayla Oxenham of Port Charlotte, FLA.

The mother of two girls, a 5-year-old and a 7-year-old, was arrested Monday on suspicions of child abuse and neglect when staff at the little girls’ day care noticed scabs on their bodies and alerted authorities.

According to police reports, the alleged abuse happened the week of March 1st. The 7-year-old girl told cops that Oxenham got mad at the 5-year-old girl for locking their pet cat in the bathroom. As punishment, Oxenham allegedly grabbed the girl by the hair and “slammed her head into the wall several times.” Later that week, while at their grandmother’s house, Oxenham allegedly used a lighter to heat up a stick and brand the girls like cattle.

After the incident she reportedly told the girls she “forgot how much she loved fire.” Her alleged reason for branding her daughters like livestock? So that “the children could have ice cream” and so that she could “identify the children as hers.”

Oxenham, who denied the charges, is out of jail on bond. The children have been placed in the custody of a relative.

I’m literally speechless.

      What is wrong with people using proper English these days?

      • Jockeyshifter

        There is nothing wrong with people using proper English, these days or on any day. The real problem lies with people who THINK they are, but have yet again, failed.

    Untreated mental illness, drugs, alcohol? If she branded them at grandmother’s, where was she during this? I hope they’re not with somebody who knew this woman was nuts.

    I unfortunately know this woman and those children don’t deserve that. They are quite amazing and intelligent. Those sweet little girls touched my heart and I really hope they are happy where they are now.

    And someone bonded her out…

    “what’s wrong with this mother?” it’s just part of the slippery slope you get when you say it’s OK to kill your unborn children – and the associated “understanding” that we are nothing but “animals who reason”. if it’s OK to kill them, then this is certainly no big stretch of anyone’s imagination.

      There’s a difference between burning a living, breathing child and aborting a bundle of cells that may or may not live.

      • Becky2eyes

        yeah, one is abuse and the other is murder. BOTH are detrimental to the ones to whom it occurs!

          It took you four month to reply, and you couldn’t come up with anything better.

      I would think because she had a choice, she has all the more responsibility to raise her children with love and respect.
