A woman with obsessive compulsive disorder was imprisoned after she had screamed at her 71-year-old mother for three days, leaving her only six hours to sleep because she forced her to clean the house repeatedly.
Anita Dorothy Cumming, 39, from Dunedin, New Zealand, was sentenced to one year in prison for violating an earlier order set up to protect her mother against such abuse.
The sentence had to be read with Cumming on video link in another courtroom after she had screamed and cried during the hearing and had to be removed from the dock by court members.
Cumming would force her mother to clean the house and called her an & # 39; f ** king bitch & # 39; when it wasn't good enough, Dunedin heard District Court Tuesday.
According to the New Zealand Heraldthe 39-year-old woman had previously pleaded guilty of three breaches of a protection order.

Cumming & # 39; s first offense took place in August, when it was made impossible for her to contact her mother after she became furious about a blueberry purchase.
When the 71-year-old refused to buy more, Cumming hit her with a glass bottle and grabbed her, the court heard.
She then terrorized her mother in February and had unlawful contact with the victim twice in April, while she was not allowed to contact her.
A psychologist's report said Cumming had an & # 39; uncertain confirmation pattern & # 39; had developed and trusted her mother to help relieve her fears with OCD.
& # 39; Those who adhere to her cleaning routines and then refuse to follow instructions are threatened with violence & # 39; said the report.
Cumming was emotional throughout the hearing session, repeatedly shouting at her mother and crying.

Judge Michael Turner constantly asked Cumming to calm down and restrain herself, and postponed her sentence for a few hours because of the interruptions.
Her 71-year-old mother was in the public gallery when her daughter was sentenced.
& # 39; Please don't do this, sir, & # 39; Cumming called to the court.
& # 39; Can someone help me? & # 39;
Due to the emotional state of Cumming, she had to be taken out of the dock by guards and heard screams from the courtroom.
Cumming & # 39; s first offense occurred in August when it was made impossible for her to contact her mother after she became furious when she bought blueberries
She was then detained in another courtroom and appeared on a mute via video link so that the conviction could take place without interruption.
Judge Turner said detention was appropriate for Cumming's behavior, because if she let her return home, it would lead to & # 39; even more offensive & # 39 ;.
While on bail, Cumming violated her terms by calling her mother.
The 39-year-old was sentenced to a year behind bars.
