Hag Got Your Tongue?
In Henry County, IN., grandmother Shirley Hagerman was charged with two felony counts of battery on February 17, after her grandsons, ages 3 and 6, told police she'd intentionally burned their tongues. The 6-year-old told a Henry County detective that Hagerman forced them to stand in a line with their tongues out, and burned their tongues with a metal screen from a heater. The burns were noticed after the boys returned home to their foster parents after a visit with their grandmother. They were briefly hospitalized for their injuries. Hagerman spent the night in jail and posted bond the following day. She is due back in court later in the month.
