Dilworth daughter charged with assaulting mother

MOORHEAD – A 28-year-old Dilworth woman is charged with felony domestic assault after police say she beat up her mother.

According to a complaint filed Monday in Clay County District, Felicia Lyn Littleghost attacked her mom after the elder woman asked her to quiet down to avoid waking the grandchildren.

According to court documents, Moorhead police responded to a domestic complaint at 5:36 a.m. on Sept. 13 at 2326 Country Club Parkway.

The grandmother told police her daughter and a companion had been drinking much of the evening, and she tried to get them to quiet down and go to sleep.

Littleghost pushed her mother to the ground, she told police, and began hitting her in the face and choking her. The grandmother had blood on her face and a bloody nose that might have been broken.

Littleghost was arrested and her bail set at $20,000. Her next court appearance is set for Oct. 7.
