An Iraqi mother accused of beating her daughter in Phoenix for not going along with an arranged marriage has pleaded guilty to unlawful imprisonment.

Maricopa County prosecutors said 50-year-old Yusra Farhan entered her plea Friday.

They said 45-year-old Mohammed Altameemi pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and 18-year-old Tabarak Altameemi pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault.

All three defendants were arrested in March. They are scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 6.

Court records show the 19-year-old woman was burned on her face and chest with a hot spoon after refusing to participate in an arranged marriage with a 38-year-old man.

Records also state that victim was tied to a bed with a rope secured with a padlock until Feb. 8, when she was released to go to school.
