She claimed her mother had woken her up to go to church, with the teen saying she was too tired to attend after working late the night before. The suspect, age 40, then returned to her daughter's room with a belt, striking her on the back. When the victim fell down her mother got on top of her, hitting her head on the floor and punching her in the face. She was arrested at the scene and charged with domestic assault.
