SALEM, Ore. (AP) - A Salem, Oregon, woman arrested along with her boyfriend for allegedly kidnapping and attempting to murder a woman has been sentenced to six years and 10 months in prison.

The Statesman Journal reports that Eva Villarreal, 37, pleaded no contest this week to the lesser charges of second-degree kidnapping, second-degree assault and third-degree assault for her role in the attack.

Villarreal and her longtime boyfriend Juan Robert Garza, 39, were arrested on suspicion of driving Garza’s childhood friend into the countryside, cutting her, strangling her, hitting her on the head with a flashlight, attempting to tie her up with zip ties and throwing her in a car trunk.
