The mother of an 11-year-old who was shot in the head after an argument has admitted threatening to squeeze out a child's eyeballs and feed them to dogs.

Sarah Kerianna Newitt, 30, pleaded guilty to using a carriage service to menace another person at Launceston Magistrates Court on Tuesday, the Hobart Mercury reports.

Newitt's daughter was shot during an incident in Deloraine, Tasmania, after an unrelated fight in August.

She didn't appear in court to face charges in October because her daughter was still in hospital.

On Tuesday, the court heard from police prosecutor Natalie Clark, who said Newitt had called Sheridan Watts – her brother's former partner – and made threats towards her children on January 1.

According to the Mercury, Newitt admitted making the call after her brother damaged the windows of their mother's home – but insisted that 'in no way did I mean it.'
