BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) - A Wyoming County woman and her son have been arrested after police say they beat a man who had refused to pay his full utility bill.

The Register-Herald (http://bit.ly/1GvWwI9 ) reported Thursday that 39-year-old Anita Gail Cecil and 20-year-old Christopher Cecil were arrested and charged with battery.

Police say Anita Cecil attacked the victim in his vehicle after he told Covel Water Works owner Pete McBride he wasn’t paying his bills because service had been interrupted. McBride is Anita Cecil’s father.

The complaint says Cecil and her son then followed the victim home and began hitting him.

McBride was not charged.

Documents show the Cecils were taken to Southern Regional Jail, but have since posted bond.

It is not clear if they have an attorney.
