COLUMBUS, Neb. (AP) - A Columbus woman has been accused of using a stun gun to shock her 13-year-old daughter.

The Columbus Telegram reports (https://bit.ly/1NOfDl7 ) that a hearing is scheduled next week for 42-year-old Ruby Baeta, who is charged with felony child abuse. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could be called to comment on Baeta’s behalf.

Columbus police say the girl and her 16-year-old sister reported that their mother shocked the younger girl around 5:30 p.m. Friday. An officer says he saw two bumps on the girl that he says could have been caused by a stun gun.

The officer says Baeta denied shocking the girl and denied owning a stun gun. He says he found a stun gun in a suitcase in a closet in the home.
