Heartbreaking Child Abuse: Mom Tells Kids She's Moving Without Them, Cops Arrest Her

HOENIX (CBS/AP) Arizona police officers arrested a mother after she reportedly told police -- and her children -- she didn't want them any more.

Police in the Phoenix suburb of Surprise say they received a phone call Friday, June 11 from an 11-year-old boy who said his mother was packing and moving to California and wasn't taking him or his 6-year-old brother with her.

Police spokesman Sgt. Mark Ortega said the boy's mother, Christina Muniz, 29, came out of her home and told officers that she was "sick of her children" and wanted the police to take them so she can "have fun and play."

Officers said they then contacted Child Protective Services. As the children were being removed by CPS, officers said the 11-year-old attempted to hug his mother and was met with a punch to the abdomen.

Muniz was arrested and charged with child neglect, felony aggravated assault, disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia.

During a court appearance Monday, a magistrate said it was heartbreaking to read the police report.

Muniz, dressed in her black and white-striped jail garb, told the magistrate it "was a big misunderstanding, miscommunication."

Muniz was then scolded by the magistrate, who said she doubted it was a misunderstanding and that Muniz said a lot of things in front of her children. She urged Muniz to get counseling.

Bond was set at $20,000 and Muniz was ordered not to have any contact with her children unless it's supervised by the state.

I can't believe a mother would treat her children this way. I'm glad they were taken away before she ended up doing more damage.

I can't believe she punched him in the belly.... what an awful mother. But I'm willing to wager the boy would take the punch over being murdered by his mother any day.

Poor little kids.

What is also sad, he still loves her, even after she did that to him. I wonder how many other times she has done that to them.

Children are so very forgiving..... all they want is to be loved by their parents.

It's so sad. I hope they are able to make it through this with someone who really does love them and can give them all the support they need.
