Eau Claire (WQOW) - A Hayward woman faces criminal charges for allegedly sending obscene and disturbing text messages to her soon-to-be stepson.

A 12-year-old Eau Claire boy told police that his dad's new fiance, Sandra Nelson, had been sending him multiple text messages. Nelson, 37, is accused of calling the boy obscene and hateful names. Investigators say one of the messages told the boy to "rot in hell."
