Mom accused of pulling gun on daughter after text message argument

PEMBROKE, N.H. — A New Hampshire mother is facing several charges after she was accused of pulling a gun on her daughter following an argument on the phone and through text messages.

Police were called to the Pembroke, New Hampshire, home of Kayleigh Kousios around 11:30 p.m. When officers arrived, Kousios said her mother, Evamarie Kousios, 50, came to her apartment to continue the argument in a bedroom.

While doing so, Evamarie Kousios allegedly pulled out a semi-automatic handgun from her jacket and pointed it at her daughter while shouting.

A relative living in the apartment heard the fight and entered the bedroom where the weapon was forcibly taken from Evamarie Kousios.

She then fled the apartment.

She was located at her home a few hours later and was arrested. Evamarie Kousios was charged with criminal threatening and felonious use of a firearm.

She is scheduled to appear at the 9th Circuit Court in Manchester on Friday.
