Mother beat children, shave their head for eating ice cream, police costs

Priscilla Zapata, admitted to the family that she “lost” after the discovery that her children had eaten the ice cream, KTVB reported, citing court documents.

A 26-year-old mother of four in Idaho severely beat each of her children, one of them, and shaved her two daughters ‘ heads earlier this year — and all because they ate a tub of ice cream, police say.

Priscilla Zapata, who lives in the Canyon County, admitted to the family that she “lost” after the discovery that her children had eaten the ice on July 18, KTVB reported, citing court documents.

One of Zapata’s daughters told the family that Zapata pushed her face into the ice, hit her “everywhere,” pushed her into a wall, and bit her, the court documents reportedly said.

Zapata’s other daughter, who told deputies she felt Zapata tried to kill her, and alleged that Zapata choked her so aggressively that she almost lifted her from the ground, the report said.

When Zapata began with shaving the girls’ heads as punishment, courts, loading documents, one of the girls said they kept quiet out of fear that Zapata would attack her.

KTVB reported that the children now in the possession of the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.

Zapata was arrested and charged with four felony counts of causing injury to a child. Each count carries a maximum prison sentence of 10 years in prison.
