WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (AP) — Florida deputies have arrested the mother of a 14-year-old accused of bullying a girl prior to her suicide.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office said Friday that 30-year-old Vivian Vosburg is being booked into the county jail on two counts of child abuse with bodily harm and four counts of child neglect. A news conference about the arrest will be held at 5:30 p.m. Friday.

Vosburg is the mother of one of two girls who was charged with felony aggravated stalking earlier in the week. Officials say the two girls bullied and harassed 14-year-old Rebecca Sedwick before she committed suicide.

Officials say Vosberg’s charges are not connected to the case involving her daughter.
