An investigation by special agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has resulted in the arrest of a Murfreesboro woman, who is charged with aggravated assault in connection with the death of her mother.

At the request of 13th Judicial District Attorney General Bryant Dunaway, TBI special agents joined officers on Thursday night with the Sparta Police Department, Tennessee Highway Patrol and the 13th District Attorney General’s Office in a death investigation at a residence on N. Edgewood Drive in Sparta.

After responding to a 911 call about a domestic disturbance at that address, Sparta officers found Emmaline Webb, 54, unresponsive. When EMS arrived, it was determined she was deceased.

During the course of the investigation, agents developed information that identified the victim’s daughter, Quonisha Webb, 30, as the individual responsible for assaulting the victim.

On Thursday night, Quonisha Webb was arrested and charged with one count of aggravated assault cause of death. She was booked into the White County Jail and is currently being held without bond.
