JACKSON, Miss (AP) - Details have been released in the case of a 15-year-old boy beaten and branded with hot metal in Lauderdale County.
Authorities say it happened after an argument with a 12-year-old girl at a party where teens had been drinking. Five people including the girl are charged in the case.
Sheriff Bllie Sllie says 46-year-old Denise Randall hosted the party last weekend.
Sollie says the young girl's boyfriend held the unidentified victim at gunpoint while he was beaten and branded.
