A Franklin woman was jailed Monday for a series of domestic violence incidents.

On Sunday, during a child custody transfer, Carly Ann Lawson, 25, told the child's father that she was coming back with a gun, according to a criminal complaint filed by Franklin city police.

The complaint said Lawson had made a similar threat last week after telling her daughter's father that she wanted to see her daughter. As it was near midnight, the father told her to come over the next day, and Lawson replied that she was coming over to shoot everyone, police said.

On June 1, she showed a .38 caliber handgun to the child's father and said she would shoot anyone who got in the way of her seeing her daughter, the complaint said.

The complaint outlined several other incidents of domestic violence involving the same man, including incidents of choking him and throwing a knife at him.

Lawson was charged with a felony count of aggravated assault, two misdemeanor counts of simple assault, terroristic threats and recklessly endangering another person.

She was placed in the Venango County jail with bail set at $25,000.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 19, in Central Court.
