LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - A Lakeland mother has been arrested for child abuse after family members said she bit her son.
    
Police investigated 26-year-old Ann Marie Kane after Department of Children and Families officials reported three adult-sized bite marks on her son.
    
According to an arrest report, Kane admitted biting the boy in the past because he was biting his siblings.
    
DCF has investigated Kane several times in the past. They removed the children from her care during the most recent investigation.
    
She was being held in the Polk County Jail on Saturday.
