Vicious Christian mum jailed for attack on daughter
Rhonda Shoffner, 41, a Pennsylvania woman who beat and tried to strangle her daughter for incorrectly reciting Bible verses, has been sentenced to prison.
Shoffner, according to this report, was sentenced last Wednesday to 30 months to five years in prison after pleading guilty to charges including aggravated assault of her daughter, who was younger than 13.
Police say the girl was forced to kneel on the bathroom floor at Shoffner’s Middletown home and repeat Bible verses. They say Shoffner slammed her head into the wall each time she made a mistake. They say Shoffner also told the child she was going to kill her and attempted to strangle her.
The girl fought off Shoffner, who told her to leave and never return. The victim then called her father, who drove her to a police station.
This report adds that Shoffner was intoxicated for days before the assault took place earlier this year.
