Police arrest a Danville mother after finding her daughter riding a bike naked several blocks from her home.
44-year-old Deanna Wharwood is facing preliminary charges of attempted murder, domestic aggravated battery, and child abuse. Police got a call Monday at 7:45 in the evening that a ten-year-old girl was naked on a bike on North Vermilion Street.
The child told police she and her mother had an argument. The girl was taken to the hospital, but was not seriously hurt. She’s now in the custody of the Department of Children and Family Services.
Formal charges are expected Thursday.
