Veronica told authorities that on one occasion she grabbed her daughter and pushed her against a wall. Additionally, Veronica said that on another occasion she had slammed the child against a mattress.

Veronica says she was frustrated with her daughter's behavior.

Veronica said she didn’t take her daughter to the hospital sooner because she feared police and the Department of Children and Families would be called on her.
