Foster Mother Accused of Abuse, Neglect
A foster mother in Columbia County is accused of doing some horrible things to her young children.
Luella Jo Mengine is charged with abusing and neglecting four foster children in her care at her rural home near Benton.
The report claims Mengine tortured the children by dunking their heads in the toilet, beating them with a tennis racket and putting their own vomit on food and forcing them to eat it.
Social service workers placed the foster children in other homes in February.
