An Orlando woman is facing charges after being accused of burning her son's hands on a hot stove as punishment.
WESH-TV reports 34-year-old Zayme Flores appeared in court Monday on felony child abuse charges and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Arrest reports say Flores' 15-year-old son found a bag of marijuana under his parents' bathroom sink and sold it so they wouldn't use it.
As punishment, Orlando police say Flores told her son to put his hands on the kitchen stove, burning his palms.
Police who arrived at the family's home say the boy had blistering on his hands from the burns.
The child and another sibling were placed with relatives.
Officials say Flores was released from jail on bond. It's unclear whether she has an attorney.
