Dorcus Moore was taken into custody on child cruelty charges earlier this week for allegedly cutting off her 13-year-old daughter’s hair and dousing her in homemade pepper spray.
According to police, Moore became enraged after the teen walked in on her and her boyfriend having sex Sunday.
The girl told police Moore ordered her to get a pair of scissors, which she then used to cut off all the kid’s hair.
When she finished with the kid’s hair, police say Moore then doused the kid’s face, arms, legs and vagina with pepper spray.
The girl apparently went to bed that night with chemical burns to her body, but alerted school officials the next day. School officials then alerted police.
Moore, 38, was released on a personal recognizance bond Wednesday, and ordered to have no contact with her daughter.
The girl is currently with her father.
One neighbor apparently heard the girl being tortured, but did nothing to help her.
Another neighbor, who police believe may have held the teen down while Moore doused her in pepper spray, is being questioned.
