PHOENIX (AP) — An Arizona woman who reportedly told police she didn't want her children any longer, and then punched her 11-year-old son in front of an authorities, has been sentenced to 30 days in jail.

A statement from Maricopa County Superior Court says 29-year-old Christina Jean Muniz of Surprise also was sentenced Tuesday to three years' probation after pleading guilty to one count of child abuse.

Officers in the Phoenix suburb came to Muniz's apartment June 11 after receiving a distress call from her son. Police say Muniz told officers she was "sick of her children" and wanted to be free of them.

As her boys were being removed by welfare workers, officers say the 11-year-old attempted to hug his mother and Muniz punched him in the stomach.
