A 36-year-old mother from Mississippi named Cynthia Skipper has been charged with attempted murder. According to police, Cynthia SHOT her daughter in the back with a PISTOL, after the two argued, and the 12-year-old started "speaking disrespectfully" towards her mom.
The daughter has been airlifted to UMMC and is listed in stable condition now. Doctors decided not to perform surgery on the girl and left the bullet inside her back because it fragmented in the soft tissue.
Cynthia is currently in the Adams County jail with no bond.
