According to Mitchell Police, Higgs went to the home of her ex-husband just before 9 a.m. to get some of her belongings.

Higgs allegedly had called her ex-husband's 19-year-old girlfriend to tell her she was coming and to leave the trailer before she arrived. However when Higgs arrived at the trailer the girlfriend was still there.

Police say the two got into an argument and Higgs allegedly pulled the teen's hair and threw her out of the trailer.
