Woman arrested after assaulting, threatening to kill elderly mother

A woman has been arrested after she assaulted her elderly mother and threatened to kill her. Newton County deputies arrested 51-year-old Charee Dawn Jones of Jasper following the incident.

The probable cause affidavit says the sheriff’s office received a 911 call from a woman crying for help. When deputies arrived, the elderly woman said her daughter had “gone crazy” and said she was “going to kill her.” The victim says she was able to call 911, but her daughter took the phone away and broke it. She says her daughter wrestled her around, causing bruising to her face and scratching her and called her “every name in the book.”

During questioning by deputies, Jones admitted to threatening to kill her mother but did not mean it. She also admitted to putting her hands on her mother.

Jones is facing felony charges of domestic battery in the second degree and terroristic threatening along with a misdemeanor charge of interference with emergency communications.
