Buckley woman convicted of putting bleach in daughter’s eyes

The Associated Press

TACOMA — A Pierce County jury has convicted a 31-year-old Buckley woman of assaulting her 14-month-old daughter by squeezing bleach into the child’s eyes.

The News Tribune reports Jennifer Mothershead was convicted Friday and will be sentenced Nov. 15.

The prosecutor may ask for an above-standard sentence because the jury found the assault amounted to torture and the girl was particularly vulnerable.

Doctors found the girl’s eyes were badly infected when she was taken to Seattle Children’s hospital in the spring of 2011 with a head injury.  Eyedrops found in a cooler the mother had taken to the hospital later were determined to contain bleach.

It’s unclear why she put bleach in the girl’s eyes. The girl lost vision in her right eye; she now lives with her father.
