An Athens woman who attacked her boyfriend with a meat cleaver was sentenced to three years in jail.

According to Athens County Prosecutor Keller Blackburn, 35-year-old Amanda Ruth was sentenced Tuesday in Athens County Common Pleas Court on two counts of felonious aggravated assault.

Last June, Ruth attacked 37-year-old Christopher McCoy with a meat cleaver.

Officers at the scene found McCoy with injuries to his right hand and back of his head following an argument with Ruth.
