A Warsaw woman is facing charges after allegedly pushing her mother then threatening to murder her when she gets out of jail.

Pamela Sue Manuel, 44, of 1820 Sue Ave., Warsaw, was booked in the Kosciusko County Jail at 11:47 p.m. Feb. 6 and faces charges for intimidation, a Level 6 felony; domestic battery, a Class A misdemeanor; and interference with the reporting of a crime, a Class A misdemeanor.

According to the probable cause affidavit filed Feb. 11 in Kosciusko Superior Court III, at 10:50 p.m. Feb. 6, Warsaw police responded to a home in reference to domestic violence.

Upon arrival, police spoke with a woman who said her daughter – Manuel – had battered her.

Police located Manuel smoking a cigarette in the garage, according to court papers, and she said she had gotten into an argument with her mother about an electrical device. Manuel claimed her mother hit her two times in the face and that her mother was blocking her path to the garage. She allegedly admitted to pushing her mother out of her way and says that is when her mother hit her.

Manuel further told police she is bipolar and “that is when she lost control,” according to the affidavit. Police found no marks on Manuel, according to court papers.

The mother told police that when she picked up her phone and said she was going to call 911, Manuel took it away from her. Manuel admitted she took the phone away from her mother to prevent her from phoning police.

According to the affidavit, when Manuel was being booked into jail, she told a jail officer that “when she was released, she was going to murder her mother.”

The officer allegedly old Manuel she didn’t want to do that, to which Manuel again stated her intent to kill her mother, according to court papers.

Her bond was set at $1,000.
