Houston, TX — Police have arrested a woman in Texas after they say she beat her little sister with an extension cord before knocking her unconscious during a fight over Cheetos.

After a 10-year-old  girl showed up to school with suspicious bruises and a bump on her head, school counselors contacted CPS and informed them that this was not the first time the girl had come to school with injuries. When inquired about her injuries, the girl told police they were from her older sister, 23-year-old Deby Mejia.

She said Mejia had gotten angry when she returned home and found the girl snacking on some Cheetos she had purchased from a neighbor. Mejia allegedly responded by whipping the girl with an extension cord, then knocked the girl unconscious by grabbing her by the hair and banging her head on the floor. Mejia told police she’s been raising her 10-year-old sister ever since their mother was deported to Honduras in 2006, and resents the child ever being born. She added that she does not love her sister, hates she was forced to care for her, and had no remorse over what she had done.

Mejia was arrested and placed in jail on a $60,000 bond, charged with felony injury to a child. The little girl told investigators she was dizzy for several days after the attack, and that she had thoughts of suicide. She is now in foster care with a custody hearing set for November 13th.

Sadly, as is usually the case, neighbors were aware of the abuse Mejia was doling out on her little sister. One neighbor says harsh punishment was not unusual. “She put her outside kneeling on rice with a bucket of water on her head,” one neighbor said. School counselors say they have notified CPS about the girl before, but CPS spokeswoman Estella Olguin says they have no record of that. She also says they have no record of being notified by immigration officials that a child was caring for a child.
