Mom lets son who sexually abused her daughter stay in her home


Carl Sumner and his estranged wife Danielle Rowe don't agree on much these days, but they both agree on one thing: their now 8-year-old daughter was in fact sexually abused by Rowe's son in 2010. That's pretty much where their consensus starts and ends. In the four years since, Sumner and Rowe have fought tooth and nail over whether or not their daughter's sexually abusive half-brother should be able to visit with their daughter.

Thanks to one quick-thinking woman, a 6-week-old baby boy who vanished with a Texas woman previously charged with starving the boy's 5-year-old brother is safe and sound, and in Child Protective Service's custody. Phew!

Police issued an Amber Alert for the newborn when his mother Tammi Bleimeyer reportedly failed to comply with a judge's order for her to turn him over to CPS Monday.
