YOLO COUNTY, Calif. - Court documents are revealing more about the troubled past of a mother accused of killing her own 5-year-old daughter.
Family court records are from the a bitter custody battle between Aquelin Talamantes and her husband. A hand written account detail claims that Talamantes had "an anger problem", according to husband, Oracio Garcia.
He wrote -- "she is a violent person" . "while living in Modesto, in our home, she would get violent and damage the property in our children's presence."
One account indicates that Talamantes "threatened to beat up" her sister-in-law.
Despite all that, Talamantes was ultimately awarded full custody of Tatiana and her younger brother.

Court documents indicate he violated the order by calling Talamantes and leaving a message.
On Monday afternoon, loved ones from Talamantes' family turned out to Yolo County Court for her first court appearance. But, they said little to reporters.
