It's Mother of the Year Marjorie Burgess. Maybe the Times Standard headline writer is new, and doesn't remember lavishing her with front page stories only a few short years ago. One son dead, and looks like another on his way. But don't worry, she probably has some of his baby pics at the ready.
◼ Woman arrested for allegedly injuring son
A Fields Landing woman was arrested Wednesday for allegedly fighting and injuring her juvenile son.
Margorie Burgess, 42, allegedly struck her son in the face with an iron, hit him in the head with a shot glass and bit him, according to a Humboldt County Sheriff's Office press release.
Deputies responded to a reported physical fight and arrested Burgess. She was booked into Humboldt County jail for one felony count of inflicting unjustifiable pain on a child.
Her bail was set at $50,000.
Margorie Burgess is also the mother of Christopher Burgess, who was shot and killed in 2006 at age 16 during an altercation with a Eureka Police Department officer.
Some kids start life with the deck completely stacked against them. And no way of turning away from the dark side.
