Texas Woman Burned during Pecan Pie Fight
In this image made from amateur video released by Shaam News Network and accessed Monday, June 11, 2012, purports to show smoke leaping the air from Syrian government forces shelling in Rastan town in Homs province, Syria. Syrian troops attacked a central, rebel-held town with helicopter gunships Monday and shelled other restive areas across the nation, activists said. The aerial assault targeted the strategic river crossing town of Rastan, which has resisted repeated government offensives for months, the activists said.

Galveston County sheriff's Capt. Barry Cook says the 23-year-old woman suffered first- and second-degree burns to her neck, face and chest on Thursday in Santa Fe.
Cook told The Associated Press that the brother is expected to face an aggravated assault charge. An affidavit has been filed but a warrant had yet to be issued Tuesday.
The woman contacted the sheriff's office, asking that the charge be dismissed but the warrant remains valid, Cook told the Galveston County Daily News.
Some pecan pie heated in a microwave allegedly was thrown on her. She required medical attention.
Cook says deputies were called after the woman and her brother apparently argued over their respective children. Cook says the woman told her sibling that their parents were too old to be watching both sets of children at the same time.
