DUBUQUE (AP) -  A Dubuque woman has been accused of using an extension cord to whip her daughter over a cellphone password.

   The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports that 38-year-old Consuelo Hernandez-Flores was arrested on Thursday and charged with assault with injury. Court records don't list the name of a defense attorney who could be contacted for comment about the case for Hernandez-Flores.

   A criminal complaint says the woman's 17-year-old daughter reported that her mother whipped her several times with the extension cord, leaving bruises, welts and abrasions on her legs. The girl says her mom hit her because she would not give her mom the password to her cellphone.

   Officers say Hernandez-Flores acknowledged "spanking" her daughter with the cord.
