The probable cause affidavit says the sheriff’s office received a 911 call from a woman crying for help. When deputies arrived, the elderly woman said her daughter had “gone crazy” and said she was “going to kill her.” The victim says she was able to call 911, but her daughter took the phone away and broke it.
