Anyone who has ever accidentally gotten hot sauce in their eye knows how painful it is. I had an incident myself after some delicious hot wings. However, imagine a mother doing it on purpose to her own child as a form of punishment.
A mother, Robin Willette Rumsey, and her friend, Krista Jean Miller, decided to punish the 14-year-old by duct taping him to a chair, forcing him to inhale weed, and pouring hot sauce in his eyes. The two friends, who live together in a West Valley City, Utah, home owned by Miller's mother, allegedly poured Tobasco into his eyes for breaking a glass dish. There were also instances where the teen had alcohol poured over his face and held in a basement. Abuse against the child has been going on for two years.
When asked about the case, West Valley Police Sgt. Jason Hauer said "This case is full of mysteries. There are a lot of questions coming up that I don't have answers to, mostly because the case is still active. The arrests made two days ago with Krista and Robin are probably just the beginning of other allegations that are going to come to light in this case."
The pair were arrested February 19 on multiple felony child abuse and endangerment charges. The boy has been placed in his father's custody.
