MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - A Mitchell woman who faced an attempted murder charge for allegedly trying to kill a man with a vehicle has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

The Daily Republic (https://bit.ly/2dtikPp) reports that Roberta Woodside pleaded guilty Tuesday to felony aggravated assault. She has also pleaded guilty to ingestion of methamphetamine in September 2015.

Authorities allege Woodside hit Joseph Vasquez in a field on Feb. 24, turned the vehicle around and hit him a second time, then drove over him before leaving the scene. The man suffered broken bones.

Charges in the case of attempted first-degree murder and two alternate counts of aggravated assault have been dismissed.

An attorney for Woodside didn’t immediately return a telephone message from The Associated Press requesting comment.
