Salem woman charged with beating boyfriend’s mom
In Salem, Mass. — A Salem woman charged with beating her boyfriend’s 66-year-old mother is due back in court to determine whether she should get bail.
Tiffany Zemp is scheduled to appear in Salem District Court on Friday for a dangerousness hearing.
Prosecutors say the 28-year-old Zemp was arrested Monday after she allegedly slammed her boyfriend’s mother into the floor repeatedly, causing injuries to her face.
Zemp was held without bail after pleading not guilty Tuesday to charges of assault and battery on a person over 60 and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon — the floor — on a person over 60.
Police say the two, who live at the same address, had a dispute over a plumbing issue.
The Salem News reports the victim was treated at the scene.
