Oklahoma Couple Sentenced to 20 Years for Torturing and Beating Boy So Badly He Suffered Multiple Strokes

Two Oklahoma women were sentenced to 20 years in prison for the brutal beating of their 5-year-old son.
Rachel Jean Stevens, 29, and Kayla Ann Jones, 26, pleaded no contest to child abuse and child neglect charges on Friday.
The boy told authorities in December 2015 that his mother, Stevens, and her partner Jones had beaten him with a belt, Tulsa World reported.
But investigators discovered that he had not just been beaten with a belt but had been locked in a room, tied up and blindfolded with duct tape over his eyes.
Stevens then had hit the boy’s hand with a hammer, and Jones had “kicked him so hard in the groin that it made him bleed,” Tulsa World reported.
According to KFOR , authorities found another 5-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl living in the home, but did not believe those children had been abused. The Department of Human Services took the children into custody.
Officers transported the victim to a hospital in Tulsa, after he suffered through two seizures, as well as multiple broken bones, according to the NewsOK.
CBS News reported in 2016 that a GoFundMe page set up by the two women asked for donations, claiming the child was picking his own face and was having seizures because he fell down.
Muskogee County District Attorney Orvil Loge told Tulsa World Wednesday that the plea agreement accepted by the women “was a conclusion that was carefully discussed with the family.”
“The nature of the injuries were very severe, but the child is doing very well now in loving home,” Loge said. “He is a completely different child now than when this first came in.”

Chip and Joanna Gaines are the definition of marriage goals, but their relationship didn’t necessarily have a fairytale start.
Joanna agreed to go out on a date with Chip after meeting him and his roommate “Hot John” — who she actually tried to approach minutes earlier, but was too shy — in the waiting room of her dad’s auto shop. She had second thoughts, however, after Chip arrived an hour and a half late to pick her up.
“He didn’t apologize for being late, either. He had so much confidence. I don’t know. I can’t explain it. Only Chip could be an hour and a half late and have no one mad about it,” Joanna writes.

The chapter continues to describe the timeline of their relationship, which didn’t actually start until months after they first went out, when Chip (in typical guy fashion) finally called Joanna back.
“I’d made a bet with Hot John to see who could hold out the longest before calling our dates back,” Chip writes “I really wanted that fifty dollars from John! That’s the only reason I didn’t call.”
After they went out a second time, the rest was history.

Samoas in cupcake form was a thing we never knew we needed, but now it’s the only thing we can think about.
Pillsbury just unveiled Girl Scout Cookie baking mixes, which are available in Thin Mints and Caramel & Coconut – a.k.a. Samoas – flavors. The four new mixes are for baking cupcakes, brownies and blondies — unfortunately, you won’t be able to make actual Girl Scout Cookies, because that would put a lot of 7-year-olds out of business.
“Families can try out their favorite cookie flavors in the form of brownies, cupcakes, and blondies, while they wait for the real thing once a year during Girl Scout Cookie season,” said Girl Scouts of the USA chief revenue officer Barry Horowitz in a statement.
GSC loyalists are, to put it mildly, freaking out.

The mixes, now available nationwide, retail for $3.29 each — almost $2 less than what you’d pay for a box of cookies.
