Mother Tries to Kill 9-Year-Old Daughter with Hedge Trimmers

Maureen Mullin, 39, is charged with attempted murder, mayhem, assault and battery on a child with injury, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, Westwood police said. The child’s father was able to stop the attack, according to police.

Police said they received a domestic disturbance call to the family’s Pond Street home at 4:50 a.m. and discovered the mother and daughter with serious injuries. Police and Westwood Fire officials treated the pair, and Mullin and the girl were taken to undisclosed hospitals.

“The injuries were serious but very luckily are non-life-threatening,” Police Chief Jeffrey Silva said.
