Guam - Rosemary Jao is behind bars accused of burning a 6-year-old female minor who is known to her. According to the magistrate's complaint, the child tried to make herself food because she was hungry. Jao allegedly became so angry she took a cigarette lighter and burned the palms of the child's hands and told her to clean the kitchen.
A school nurse contacted child protective services after noticing blisters on the girl's hands. Jao was arrested and charged with 2 counts of family violence, 3 counts of child abuse and assault.
