A 91-year-old Kentucky woman was found in immense pain days after being assaulted at the hands of her daughter, police say.

Warren County officers went to do a welfare check on Lucille Lindsey of Bowling Green on Wednesday and discovered the abuse.

Officers learned that Lindsey's daughter, Gerri Carnes, 57, had assaulted her mother earlier in the week.

Lindsey was transported to a local hospital where she is currently being treated for her injuries.

Meanwhile, Carnes is charged with wanton abuse/neglect of adult by person and served an Emergency Protective Order.

Adult Protective Services was contacted and the investigation is ongoing.
