INDUSTRY — A local woman is accused of getting into an argument with a 14-year-old family member and choking the teenager Wednesday night at a home on Industry Road, State Trooper Randy Hall said.

Rose Lynn Bernard, 34, was arrested on a felony charge of aggravated assault and a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child, Hall said Thursday.

The incident was reported at about 8 p.m.

Bernard is being held without bail at Franklin County Detention Center in Farmington until she goes before a judge Friday.

A conviction on an aggravated assault charge is punishable by a maximum 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine, while a conviction on an endangering charge carries up to 364 days in jail and a $2,000 fine.
