SAN BRUNO, Calif. Three months in jail is the sentence for a California woman who used a butcher knife to beat a Jehovah's Witness, after the woman knocked on her door on Christmas Day.
Cathy Infusino also will spend three months in a work program and three years on probation. She pleaded no contest to assault with a deadly weapon.
Her lawyer says Infusino was paranoid and was being harassed by neighbors at the time of the attack.
The Jehovah's Witness had shown up at Infusino's apartment by mistake and was looking for a neighbor who was interested in the religion. Infusino grabbed her by the hair and pulled her into the apartment.
The attorney says Infusino is taking medication now and seeing a psychiatrist regularly.
