SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts woman has been sentenced to nine months in jail for slamming her four young children’s heads into the floor of a Springfield grocery store while high on drugs.

The Republican (https://bit.ly/1PX0DAU ) reports that Felisha Colon said “kiss the floor” before assaulting the children last June. The store manager told police he saw the 27-year-old Colon grab a 22-month-old girl by the hair and slam her head. Two children were taken to the hospital. Two others didn’t require treatment.

Colon later tested positive for PCP.

Her lawyer said Colon smoked marijuana not knowing it was laced with PCP.

Colon pleaded guilty to assault and battery on a child. She was sentenced to 18 months in jail, with nine months suspended, and ordered to undergo mental health and substance abuse treatment.
