An Indiana woman allegedly beat her two sons for opening their Christmas gifts early this past Saturday night.
Sascha Collins, 36, of Greenfield, said she beat her 7 year old and 9 year old sons after the curious boys found their Christmas gifts in her closet and opened them before Christmas.
The boys told detectives that their mother threw them against the walls and beat them with a belt.
Collins’ own teenager daughter called the police on her after the girl returned home Sunday morning and saw her two brothers badly bruised with marks on their bodies.
A neighbor, Buffy Lutz told CBS news, “They’re all excited about gifts, they’re wanting to go through and open things. My 16-year-old is still trying to do that.”
Collins, who had been drinking and snorting hydrocodone the night before, admitted beating the kids to the police. She told police, “There’s no excuse for it.”
The Hancock County Prosecutor Brent Eaton praised Collins’ daughter for coming forward and made this statement, “She put somebody else’s interests in front of her own, and she did what was right.”
Collins was arrested and charged with two felony counts of aggravated battery. She faces up to 12 years in prison.
