Plea entered in AZ arranged marriage beating case
Mother pleads not guilty to assault, other charges in arranged marriage beating case in Ariz
By The Associated Press

PHOENIX (AP) ' A mother suspected of beating her 19-year-old daughter for not going along with an arranged marriage pleaded not guilty to aggravated assault, unlawful imprisonment and resisting arrest.

Maricopa County Superior Court officials said 50-year-old Yusra Farhan entered the plea Monday.

Authorities say Farhan was first arrested Feb. 7 on suspicion of unlawful imprisonment and aggravated assault after her daughter refused to participate in an arranged marriage with a 38-year-old man.

Police say Farhan burned her daughter on the face and chest with a hot spoon.

Two other defendants, 18-year-old Tabarak Altameemi and 45-year-old Mohammed Altameemi, also pleaded not guilty to assault and unlawful imprisonment.
