A 44-year-old North Carolina woman has been taken into custody charged with incest after allegations came to light that she had a sex encounter with her 25-year-old married son.

According to the Daily Mail, Melissa “Missy” Kitchens and Shaun Thomas Pfeiffer, her son, each face felony charges of incest as a result of the illicit relationship.

The perverted mother was arrested on September 7th, and her son was taken into custody the following day.

Arrest documents indicate that the mother and son had sex back in August.

Police said Pfeiffer is also facing charges of communicating threats, indecent liberties with a child and being intoxicated and disruptive.

His Facebook page reveals that he has a young toddler and that he appears to live with both his wife, Shannon Roman and his mother.

It is not clear what Kitchens’ marital status is, and Pfeiffer recently posted a picture of his mother on his profile just over a month ago.
