Mother Attacks Daughter With Clippers

According to Mail Online

A Massachusetts woman is facing an attempted murder charge after police say she has attacked her 9-year-old daughter with a pair of electric hedge clippers, nearly severing the child’s thumb.

Both the mother and the girl were hospitalized with serious but non-life threatening injuries following the incident that took place in the family’s Westwood home early Monday morning.

Chief Jeff Silva said the 9-year-old’s father stepped in to stop the attack reported at about 5am by the young victim, who told police that her mother was trying to kill herself. The couple’s younger child who was in the house was unharmed.

Maureen Mullin, 39, was ordered held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing at an arraignment on charges including of attempted murder, assault and battery on a child and mayhem at her bedside at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston on Monday.

Police received a call at around 4.51am Monday from a young girl reporting a domestic disturbance at her home at 126 Pond Street in Westwood.

When officers arrived at the house, they discovered that Maureen Mullin had attacked her 9-year-old daughter with a gardening tool. Both the mother and daughter sustained serious injuries and were taken to area hospitals for treatment.

An arrest report cited by the Boston Globe painted a horrific scene inside the Mullins’ residence, with blood staining the walls, floor and bedding of the 9-year-old’s bedroom and other rooms upstairs.

Police have credited the actions of Mullin’s husband with saving his daughter from the brutal attack launched by his wife.

Anthony Mullin, 39, told investigators that he was awakened just before 5am by the screams of his two daughters, ages 9 and 5, coming from a bedroom. Moments later, he heard one of his children say, ‘Why are you doing this, mommy?’

Responding officers found both the girl and her mother covered in blood. The woman, still in her husband’s embrace, was heard repeatedly saying, ‘I just wanted us all to be together.’

According to Mr Mullin, before police arrived, his wife grabbed a kitchen knife and threatened to stab him and take her own life.

Police have yet to determine the motive behind the attack, but Mr Mullin said that his wife has been taking medication for depression and had an appointment for an unspecified mental health issue.

The family’s neighbors in Westwood were stunned by the sudden outbreak of violence in the quiet community, describing the couple and their girls as seemingly happy and friendly.

How selfish of her to want to end her life and take her daughter’s precious life. She wanted the poor child to bleed out…sad.
