The suspect claimed that her mother had been unhappy ever since she had started getting back with her ex-husband.

"They argued about this matter a lot. AF refused to take her mother's advice, she was upset, so she assaulted her mother," Vani said.

She said AF was boiling water to make tea while her mother was doing laundry when the incident happened.

"Suddenly AF went to her mother and poured the boiling water over her face," Vani explained.

AF's mother reported the assault to the Jambi Police.

AF was charged under Article 44 of Law No. 23/2004 on the eradication of domestic violence. (nal)
