Woman who attempted to poison her daughter gets 20 years
A court in Plzeň on Friday sentenced a woman to 20 years in prison for attempting to kill her five-year-old daughter. The woman originally received an exceptional sentence of 25 years but the Constitutional Court overturned the verdict. The woman was convicted of attempted murder; in 2010, she deliberately poisoned her daughter with antifreeze she added to her tea, and only called an ambulance several hours later. The girl survived without any permanent damage to her health.
