The incest epidemic continues as yet another twisted mother stands accused of carnal acts with her own offspring. 45-year-old mother Melissa Nell Kitchens stands accused of having sex with her son Shaun Thomas Pfeiffer, 25, sometime in August. They were both arrested last week in their hometown of Asheville, North Carolina and face felony incest charges, which could result in a maximum sentence of over 3 years in jail.
Social media tells a complicated tale. Kitchens, who goes by the nickname “Missy,” according to her Facebook profile left effusive messages on her son’s page, including the message “Can't get over How Handsome You Are and I'm about to Cry” and alluding to stressful times. Pfeiffer is self-employed and married according to his Facebook profile. It is unknown how these allegations came to light at this time. Pfeiffer is being held on $70,500 bail while his mother’s bail is set at $30,000. Their next court date is at the end of the month.
