Mom jailed for baseball attack on sleeping 17-year-old son

Updated:

LAUDERHILL, Fla. (AP) – A South Florida woman is being held in jail after police say she struck her teenage son about 30 times with a baseball bat.

A judge on Monday set a $50,000 bond for 50-year-old Sheronda Hall Reselva. She's accused of hitting her 17-year-old son with the bat while he was sleeping Sunday morning.

According to Lauderhill police, Reselva left the teen's bedroom after hitting him, returned with a knife and told him she was going to kill him.

The South Florida SunSentinel reports the teen told police he grabbed his mother's arm and ran from the house. A neighbor in the Fort Lauderdale suburb says the teen ran toward him and asked him to call 911.

Reselva is charged with aggravated child abuse.
