Car park rage mum gets community service

‘A woman tried to strangle a mother in a busy car park as payback for leaving four kids unattended in a car while she used a nearby ATM, a court has been told.

The Brisbane District Court was told Deanne Margaret Harris, 44, was so enraged over the incident at Westfield Carindale, in Brisbane’s east, on December 29, 2005, that she confronted 32-year-old Tepurewa Morrison and told her she did not deserve to have children.

When Ms Morrison told her to “piss off” and got into the car, Harris leaned through the window and grabbed her around the neck, digging her nails into her throat.

Ms Morrison grabbed Harris’ hair in an attempt to fight her off, but the fight continued until a passing man separated them.’
