An Athens County woman will spend the next three years in prison.

35-year-old Amanda Ruth of Athens was sentenced Monday for two counts of aggravated assault.

Back in June, sheriff's deputies say Ruth attacked a man with a meat cleaver during a fight between the two.

The victim suffered injuries to his right hand and the back of his head.

Ruth is sentenced to eighteen months in prison on each count, adding up to a total of three years behind bars.
