HOLLAND, Mich. (WOOD — A woman who attacked a group home housemate will spend more than four years in prison.

Lori Ann Pietila was sentenced to between 57 and 120 months in prison with credit for 154 days served.

In September 2013, Pietila attacked a resident of the Holland group home where she lived, beating the victim into unconsciousness at times during the hour-long assault.

She pleaded no contest in December to one count of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder.
