SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Federal agents have arrested a woman suspected of prostituting her 14-year-old daughter in Puerto Rico.

Authorities filed a federal criminal complaint charging Betsian Carrasquillo Penaloza with taking her daughter and two other girls to the Sheraton Hotel at the San Juan Convention Center after meeting with undercover U.S. agents. The affidavit says Carrasquillo demanded $500 for sex with her daughter and $250 more for each of the other girls.

An agent with Homeland Security Investigations says in an affidavit signed Friday that the 34-year-old Carrasquillo also prostituted other underage girls and goes by the nickname "Fatty the Maneater."

Carrasquillo has not entered a plea and remains in jail.
