A Kennesaw woman was arrested after police said she sat on her 2-year-old son’s head for an hour.

Susan Elizabeth Kelley placed her son’s head on the seat portion of a wooden dining room chair with a towel placed under the child’s head, according to a warrant obtained Monday by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“The accused sat on the child’s head, with full body weight, for approximately 1 hour in an attempt to gain ‘submission’ from the child,” according to the warrant.

The child, who had redness on his head, chest and back, became unresponsive and was taken to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston. He is expected to make a full recovery, according to the warrant.

Kelley was arrested on a charge of first degree cruelty to children. She was released from the Cobb County Adult Detention Center on $55,220 bond.
