A 44-year-old North Carolina woman and her 25-year-old son have been charged with incest after the pair allegedly had sex last year.
Melissa Kitchens, pictured below with another child whose identity has been blurred, and Shaun Pfeiffer face felony charges. Kitchens case, which is still pending, has been moved to Superior Court in North Carolina. Pfeiffer’s next court date is March 23, according to a spokesman for the Buncombe County District Court.
It’s not immediately clear how the alleged relationship came to light.
But, according to the Citizen-Times, Pfeiffer also faces charges of indecent liberties with a child. That alleged incident occurred last year,
Pfeiffer was arrested last Thursday. Kitchens was already in court by Thursday, and her next court date is scheduled for Sept. 29.
A few publications have pointed to a strange rambling post by Kitchens on her son’s Facebook page in which she says that she can’t get over how handsome her son is. Normally, this type of comment could be interpreted as a simple loving mom remark. But things change when you’ve been charged with incest.
As the New York Daily News noted, Pfeiffer’s Facebook profile lists him as married, but the profile of the woman he’s appeared in intimate pictures with is listed as divorced.
