A 22-year old woman was arrested on Thursday after Rehovot police discovered that she had repeatedly abused her 60-year-old mother for the past 10 years.
The daughter reportedly used to make her mother sleep sitting up, wash dishes with boiling hot water for hours, and repeat sentences she had dictated to her.
The mother reported the story to the police, after the daughter, apparently mentally ill, allegedly beat her and severely bruised her entire body.
Police arrived at the house where the two women lived and arrested the daughter, who was taken for a psychiatric evaluation, Army Radio reported.
Rehovot Police Chief Dep.-Cmdr. Alon Levavi stated that when police arrived at the scene they witnessed "blatant neglect and severe abuse."
