GERING, Neb. (AP) - A Scottsbluff woman accused of using a bat to beat a man over a drug debt last July has been sent to prison.

Court records say 50-year-old Angel Bering was sentenced on Monday to seven to 12 years in prison. She’d pleaded no contest and was convicted of two felonies: assault and use of a weapon. She was credited with 165 days already served.

Scottsbluff radio station KNEB reports (https://bit.ly/1RDfh6I ) that Bering also is known as Tracy Bering.

Authorities say she struck the man because he owed her $1,400 for methamphetamine. Two men with Bering were charged with misdemeanor assault. Authorities say they used a knife to cut the back of the drug customer’s head and hit and kicked him.
