"Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned". That old idiom came to fruition in Houma Louisiana this past week. Imagine being awakened by the feeling of boiling hot grease being poured on your body.

That horrific nightmare came true for one Houma resident early Thursday morning. Authorities say they were summoned to a home in the 2600 block. Responding officers reported finding a man with severe burns over his torso, right arm, and face. He was taken immediately to a Baton Rouge burn center for treatment. Authorities also noted that there were tacks strategically placed on the bedroom floor and in the bed with the sleeping victim.

The source of those burns have been attributed to hot grease and an ex-girlfriend. Yesterday Lynette Tyese Joseph turned herself in to authorities at the Houma Police Department. Joseph is now facing charges of second degree battery. The condition of her victim  has not been updated as of this time.
