As a result, the woman was arrested and charged with assault, confinement, failing to provide the necessities of life and two counts each of failing to comply with a recognizance and probation order.

On Jan. 28, the woman was arrested again at the home for failing to comply with her release order and charged with two more counts of the offence.

She was held for bail and was scheduled to be in court on Jan. 29 in Timmins.
