Police, has arrested a mother who beat and choked her daughter following a three-day drinking binge because she failed to recite Bible verses properly.
The woman, Rhonda Kemp Shoffner, 41, is accused of waking her daughter, who is aged under 13, up from a nap and ordering her to ring several family members.
According to PennLive, she then flew into a rage after nobody answered and ordered the youngster to get on her knees on the bathroom floor.
The child told cops her mum had been drunk for three days straight and she knew if she had to get on knees it meant she would be beaten.
The girl told her mother: “Please don’t hit me. I don’t want to get on my knees,” the arrest report said.
Shoffner got even angrier and told her daughter to “get on her (expletive) knees, police in Middletown, Pennsylvania, said.
The girl was then asked to recite from the Bible and the mum kicked and punched her whenever she gave a wrong answer.
The mother said she was wrong saying: “God told the man to kill his son” and slammed the girl’s head into the wall at least five times, cops said.
The victim tried to defend herself with her hands and begged her mother to stop.
The girl tried to fight her mother off, who bit the girl in her arm and shoulder, and eventually escaped and ran down the road where she called her dad, who took her to the police station.
Schoffner was arrested and charged with aggravated assault on a child, strangulation and making terroristic threats.
