Police said Terrie Greene told them that her daughter picked up the child and started walking to the front door when the verbal argument turned physical. Terrie Greene said Felicia Greene punched her in the face and the body, according to the complaint, and when Terrie Greene was able to break free, she grabbed a kitchen knife and baseball bat and confronted her daughter, police said.
Terrie Greene told police that she and Felicia Greene began fighting some more, and then she "lost it" and stabbed Felecia Greene in the stomach with the kitchen knife and hitting her daughter with the baseball bat, according to the complaint.
