According to police records, Sin allegedly cut the child’s knee on about July 15, after the child wouldn’t listen to her. Her husband, Poe, allegedly took the child to the hospital and told the child to tell doctors they got the wound from falling off their bike.

The child would later tell police Sin was drunk at the time, and told them they deserved to be cut.

Poe allegedly told police he wasn’t aware the child had been cut at first, but he later changed his story and said he didn’t believe the child had been cut but had rather fallen off his bike.

Sin allegedly admitted to cutting the child’s knee in the kitchen of her home and said Poe was in another room, and knew about the injury immediately. She allegedly told police she had difficulty keeping her anger in check after the child refused to listen to her.

Sin’s sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 4, 2016.
