Mother Accused Of Assaulting Daughter Over Bad Grade

 FEDERAL WAY, Wash. (AP) — A 44-year-old mother is accused of dousing her teen daughter in gasoline and threatening to light her on fire because of what the victim said was a bad test grade.

Seattlepi.com reports the woman also reportedly struck the 14-year-old girl with a tire jack and whipped her with a phone charger cord before the teen ran away to seek help from neighbors.

Lisa Kyles was charged Nov. 16 with attempted first-degree assault and felony harassment, both with domestic violence qualifiers. She pleaded not guilty Tuesday in King County Superior Court.

Detective Richard Kim says Federal Way police were called to an apartment complex Nov. 10 on reports that a mother threatened to light her daughter on fire with gasoline before taking off in a van.

The girl was taken to St. Francis Hospital for treatment before Child Protective Services took custody of her.
