A mother is behind bars accused of trying to kill her 13-year-old daughter.

The Scioto County Sheriff's Office says they responded to a domestic call on Swauger Valley Road in Portsmouth about 11 a.m. Sunday where they found a 13-year-old stabbed one time in the back.

Her mother, Angela Shepherd, 42, was arrested and charged with attempted murder.

She was arraigned Monday and bond was set at $100,000. Shepherd is expected to be in court again later this week.
