74-year-old Woodway woman arrested in beating

HEWITT, TX (KXXV) -

A 74-year-old Woodway woman faces charges after a violent confrontation with relatives.

 Rebecca May Horne was arrested early Monday afternoon at her sister's home in the 800 Block of Eagle's Nest in Hewitt.  

According to the Hewitt Police Chief, James Devlin, Horne went to the home and used her cane to beat her sister and her sister's husband when they answered the door.  

Chief Devlin says the couple was able to shut the door and dial 9-1-1 for help.  But before police arrived, Horne picked up a landscape stone and tried to throw it through the door, and use some sharp object to scratch the couple's car.  

Horne faces charges that included assault on an elderly person and criminal mischief.
