(Mankato, MN) – A 32-year-old Mankato woman accused of beating her daughter for eating the last of the ice cream has been sentenced.
Tonyeshia Carter-Nicholson was fined $300 and given one-year probation for her guilty plea to domestic assault. She will also have to undergo anger management, if recommended by her probation agent.
Last December, Mankato Police were called to Carter-Nicholson’s apartment on a complaint of possible child abuse. Officers found a girl who was frightened and crying. She said her mother got mad over missing ice cream and hit her multiple times with a belt on the arm and neck.
Also questioned by police was a neighbor, who said she heard Carter-Nicholson yell “Who ate my (expletive) ice cream?” and then heard Carter-Nicholson beating the girl for minutes on end.
