KINGMAN, AZ (CBS5) -

A Kingman woman was arrested on suspicion of killing a cat and throwing the body at her 74-year-old mother before beating her.

Lana Renee Meadville, 47, was arrested Thursday morning on suspicion of felony domestic violence and felony animal cruelty after Mohave County sheriff's deputies found her sitting in a chair at a home in the 4200 block of North Skylark Road, said Trish Carter of the Mohave County Sheriff's Office.

Carter said a knife was on the floor next to the chair and the body of the cat nearby.

Meadville's mother told deputies her daughter threw the dead cat at her after she woke up. She said they argued and that Meadville got her on the ground and hit her in the face numerous times, Carter said.

The mother said she was able to get out of the house to call deputies, who said the mother's eyes were severely swollen and bruised.

Meadville was booked into the Mohave County Jail.
