LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A 21-year-old Lufkin woman who was accused of assaulting her 14-year-old sister over being too loud back in May was “no-billed” by an Angelina County jury on Sept. 30.

The Angelina County grand jury chose to “no-bill” Sarah Jane Southwood because they felt there wasn’t enough evidence to merit a jury trial.

Southwood was originally arrested and charged with third-degree felony injury to a child on May 19. She posted a bail amount of $5,000 and was released from the Angelina County jail two days later.

According to the arrest report, Southwood was in an argument with her father because he wanted her to clean up around the house. Southwood's 14-year-old half-sister then came in the room mad because she could not sleep and she had to get up for school the next day.

According to the report, the sister threw a shoe at Southwood but missed. Southwood threw the shoe back at her, but missed too. Southwood then chased down her sister, grabbed her by the hair and pulled her to the floor and started hitting her, according to the report.
