A Houston mother is in police custody after doctors reported her for abusing her 6 year old son. 

The abuse was discovered when 26-year-old Jessica Ann Mungia took her child to the hospital to be treated for a broken arm.  The doctors contacted authorities and CPS after finding wounds and bruises consistent with what the boy said his mother did to him.

She is accused of burning her son's tongue with a hot spoon, making him stand in an ant bed, hitting him on the head with a screwdriver and cutting his arm with a knife.  Mungia's bail has been set at $60,000.
