A SC woman is facing a child cruelty card after an incident involving a misplaced Mother's Day card.

In the police report, Murphy says she "does not believe it was in a hard or violent manner" and when she was asked why she beat him, the mother says "because I could". The child's sister said the latest incident began when he made a Mother's Day card for his grandmother and not Murphy, which the girl said threw her into a rage, per WRBC.

The police report included no ages for the family.

The boy's grandmother said she saw Murphy hit the boy three times in the head.

While she claimed she disciplined her son because of behavioral issues in school, police discovered an alternate reason.

The warrant says the 6-year-old boy was hit in the head "really hard a few times", according to the boy's sister who witnessed it. Officers discovered a torn Mother's Day card at the scene, according to the WBRC report.
