Farrell says Helen Ryan suffered a broken leg, broken sternum and other injuries.

The Middletown Times Herald-Record reports ( ) Ryan’s mother had a protection order against him after repeated disputes, including an earlier incident in which he drove into the house.

Ryan was convicted of attempted murder and assault in April.
