CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A Charleston man who admitted striking a Kanawha County sheriff’s vehicle and another car has been sentenced.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail (https://bit.ly/1OBfOSp) reports 35-year-old Brian Edward Spencer pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted murder and to a charge of destruction of property. He was sentenced Monday to serve three to 15 years for each count of attempted murder. After the prison sentence, Spencer will serve one year in jail for the destruction of property charge.

Prosecutor Zoe Shavers says Spencer drove the car toward Cpl. A.J. Miller of the Kanawha Sheriff’s Office and Spencer’s sister-in-law Wendy Sullivan in January. Miller was injured and taken to the hospital. Sullivan was able to get out of the way.

Shavers says Spencer had been arguing with family members before the incident.
