RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A North Carolina woman who pleaded guilty to shooting a Virginia state trooper after a high-speed chase in the Richmond area has been sentenced to 46 years in prison.

Local media report 23-year-old Karisa Daniels of Durham was sentenced Tuesday for the six felony charges she faced in connection with the September incident, including trying to kill a police officer.

Police said Senior Trooper C.A. Putnam pulled Daniels over for speeding outside Richmond in September. When Putnam walked up to Daniels‘ car, police said she sped away. A chase ensued, ending after she turned into a cul-de-sac.

Police said Daniels got out of her car and shot the trooper as he approached her on foot. A second trooper took her into custody.

Putnam was treated at a hospital.
