    Authorities say a central Florida woman fatally shot her adult daughter in an apparent accident.

    Winter Haven Police say 52-year-old Adele Bing was charged with second-degree and child abuse Tuesday.

    Police say Bing had just had a heated argument with her boyfriend before Monday night's shooting.

    According to police, when Bing heard a knock at her door, she armed herself with a baseball bat and a handgun. The gun fired as Bing was opening the door, hitting her daughter, 25-year-old Ruby Bing, in the chest. She died at the scene. Ruby Bing had been holding her own infant when she was hit, but the child wasn't injured.

    Adele Bing was being held at the Polk County jail. It wasn't clear if she had an attorney.
