SANFORD, Fla. - A 45-year-old woman was arrested on battery charges after investigators said she beat up her 79-year-old ex-boyfriend.

Officers said Sonia Lynn Hughey walked into the man's room at about 3 a.m. Thursday, jumped on him, and used her elbow to hit him in the back and ribs.

Authorities said Hughey, who lived in the home as well, was in an on-and-off relationship with the victim.

She claimed he was the one who beat her, but the man denied that allegation, investigators said.

Hughey is in jail without bail.
