DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A Des Moines woman accused of hitting her roommate with a shovel after a dispute over clearing snow has been arrested.

Des Moines police say 46-year-old Marie Alana Connett was arrested Tuesday. She faces a charge of willful injury. Court records do not list an attorney.

The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/1j3ShcA ) Connett is accused of hitting her roommate multiple times in the head and shoulders with a hard plastic shovel during an incident on Feb. 5. The victim says Connett tried to drag her outside the house and demanded that she shovel the driveway.

The injured woman was later treated at a hospital for a shoulder fracture.

Court records show Connett has been released from the Polk County Jail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on Feb. 21.
