Charges: Coon Rapids mom whipped 2 daughters with electrical cord

COON RAPIDS, Minn. (KMSP) -

Police arrested a Coon Rapids mother of beating her 16- and 10-year-old daughters, and prosecutors claim her children feared what their mother would do if they notified police.

According to the criminal complaint, Julia Peter Modj Kojo's daughters described being hit over 20 times with a phone cord and an electrical cord. One described a thrash that broke her skin, and revealed a blood-soaked bandage to officers who responded to the assault report.

Both daughters told officers that their mother also pointed a wooden deer with sharp antlers at them and threatened to kill them if they did not listen.

When questioned by the police, Kojo, 31, said this was all a game and that she did not have enough energy to carry out such a beating, the complaint said.

Anoka County Court ultimately charged Kojo with two counts of malicious punishment of a child.
