According to WSB TV, Joselinne Rivera-Ruiz was arrested in Canton, GA, today following a domestic dispute with her lover, Maria Americano.
The two women got into a fight, and when police arrived, they found Americano locked in a bedroom with some children.
Police said Josephine Americano, Maria’s daughter, called police.
According to the police report, the women fought in front of their children from previous relationships with men.
Both women were taken into custody after police noticed bruises and scratches on them. They were both charged with battery and cruelty to children.
Rivera-Ruiz is the mother of Jorelys Rivera, 7, who was raped and murdered by Ryan Brunn, 20, a maintenance man who worked and lived at the complex where Jorelys and her family resided.
Brunn pleaded guilty to killing Jorelys in December 2011, avoiding a jury trial. He committed suicide in January by hanging himself in his cell at a state prison.
