Wife sentenced to time served in plate attack

HARTFORD CITY, Ind. – A central Indiana woman has been sentenced to time served after pleading guilty to smashing a ceramic plate over her husband's head and stabbing him with the broken shards.

Forty-five-year-old Robin L. McJury had pleaded guilty to domestic battery in last summer's attack.

The Star Press reports ( that a Blackford Circuit Court judge gave McJury a one-year sentence and then suspended all but 38 days, time that McJury has already spent in the county jail. She also received 289 days of probation.

Police said McJury broke a plate over her husband's head last August at their Hartford City home and then used the plate's jagged pieces to stab him three times in the leg.

McJury told police she was tired of being spoken to in a demeaning manner.
