A 30 year-old Covington woman was arrested by the Covington Police Department (CPD) after she reportedly threatened to kill her mother during an argument Jan 8.

According a CPD incident report, CPD Officers Quinn Pitts and Justin Stott responded to a report of a juvenile problem at 3246 West St., in Covington.  When they arrived, they met with Judy Horton, who told them that her daughter, Cenyardra Horton had threatened to kill her during an argument about changing clothes.  

Horton also told police that her daughter has a history of mental health problems and that she did not want her to go to jail, but that she wanted her to get some help, according to the report.

When questioned about the threats by the officers, Cenyardra Horton reportedly said, “I’m goddess of the world, God, Jesus. I told her if I had a gun, I would have shot her.”

According to the report, Pitts and Stott advised Cenyardra Horton she could not threaten people. Stott asked if she wanted to speak with someone from mental health. She declined the offer.  When asked if she was going to harm her mother, she reportedly told the officers, “If I want to and if you put me in handcuffs, you’re putting yourself in handcuffs.”

According to the report, Judy Horton told the officers she felt threatened by her daughter’s words and she believed her daughter would follow through on her threats.

Cenyardra Horton was placed under arrest for terroristic threats and violation of the family violence act and transported to the Newton County Law Enforcement Center.
