(KSL News) -- A woman accused of scalping a 16-year-old girl turned herself in to Idaho police Wednesday.

26-year-old Marriane Dahle was arrested on suspicion of aggravated battery. She allegedly tied her friend Sheila up and cut away a six to eight inch section of her scalp.

Sheila, Scalping Victim: "I just thought my head hurt... ... Didn't realize until I got to hospital I’d been scalped"

Doctors were able to recover the scalp, but could not reattach it.

Sheila underwent skin grafts and anticipates another surgery.

Police think Dahle wanted revenge because she thought the teen was being disrespectful to women.

It happened on January 18th at Kirkham Hot Springs in central Idaho.
