Authorities in northwest Arizona said a woman killed a cat and threw the remains at her mother before hitting her multiple times in the face.

According to the Mohave County Sheriff's office, Lana Renee Meadville, 47, of Kingman, was arrested Thursday morning after her 74-year-old mother called deputies to their home.

Citing Meadville's mother, deputies said they arrived at their home where the suspect was sitting in a chair with a knife and a dead cat.

The sheriff's office said the victim told deputies Meadville threw the dead cat at her after waking up from sleep. An argument occurred, leading the suspect to get her mother on the ground and hit her in the face, as deputies were told by the victim.

Meadville was taken to Mohave County Jail and booked on charges of cruelty to animals and aggravated assault per domestic violence, according to the sheriff's office.
