In a shameful plot that would qualify her for "World's Worst Daughter," Julie P. Franck donned a ski mask before she and an accomplice allegedly robbed Franck's 55-year-old mother of her 3.5-carat diamond engagement ring outside her Bucktown home.

Police say Franck's partner in crime shot her mother 15 times with a taser before the two fled the home, located in the 1700 block of North Marshfield Avenue, in a Smart car, reports ABC Chicago.

Franck, 36, reportedly donned a ski mask in the Oct. 9 attack so her mother wouldn't recognize her as the pair stole the $40,000 ring, $200 in cash and credit and debit cards, says WGN.

A witness was able to yank Franck's ski mask off before she and her partner drove away.

According to the Sun-Times, Franck was arrested Friday and charged Sunday with armed robbery.

The pregnant Franck was reportedly ordered held in lieu of $300,000 bail, writes the Tribune.

ABC News notes police didn't provide information on Franck's alleged accomplice or why it took more than a month for Franck to be arrested.
