She was treated at Massena Memorial Hospital for a laceration to the back of the head.
Jessica, in her statement to police, said she had suggested her sister-in-law should take some more suboxone when she was arguing with her mother on the phone.
This all went down because of drugs, the siblings mother, Cherrie Perry, told police.
