CAMPBELLS CREEK, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A woman has been charged in the murder of her mother.

The criminal complaint states Marlo Denny and her mother, Nancy McGraw, were arguing Thursday night in a home on Springfork Drive off Campbells Creek Drive in eastern Kanawha County.

According to the criminal complaint McGraw had come after Denny with a knife, and Denny then repeatedly hit McGraw in the head and neck area, knocking her to the floor. Police say Denny told them that she stomped on her mother's head and put her foot on her neck until she stopped moving--all to protect herself. Neighbors told WSAZ.com that McGraw suffered from Alzheimer's.

Paramedics performed CPR on McGraw, but she pronounced dead on the way to the hospital.

Denny was arraigned Friday afternoon on murder charges in Kanawha County Magistrate Court.

She was taken to the South Central Regional Jail.
