The video showed Stacey repeatedly punching the victim in the head before picking her up and throwing her into a television. Stacy proceeds to throw something in the woman's face while she's on the ground before picking her up again and slamming her into a baby walker. The footage was captured from multiple angles by cameras in the victim's home.
