Mom accused of handcuffing, beating and starving kids

An East Tennessee woman is accused of handcuffing, beating, and starving her stepsons. Her 14-year-old testified at a hearing in Knoxville that Jessica Cox abused him and his sixteen year old brother. He said his brother was handcuffed to a kitchen cabinet and left for days without food. And she allegedly held his head underwater in an icy bath tub, before burning his privates with a lit cigarette. The boys were able to escape from the home in May. Now a judge has ordered Jessica Cox bound over to a grand jury on aggravated child abuse charges.
