The girl told authorities that it was her mother who first became angry after seeing photos posted on social media. Her mother tried to spank her, but when she was not successful, her father, Christian Amason, took charge.
In a WTVC report, the teenager stated that her father slapped and grabbed her before both parents followed her into her bedroom.
