MINNEAPOLIS -

A Minneapolis day care owner has been sentenced to 10 years of probation for trying to kill a toddler in her home by hanging him from a noose.

Nataliia Karia, 43, was sentenced Monday after earlier pleading guilty to attempted murder and third-degree assault.

Karia also pleaded guilty to criminal vehicular operation for hitting a pedestrian, a bicyclist and another driver as she fled from her home in a minivan back in November 2016.

According to the Star Tribune, Karia must follow court-ordered mental health treatment and will be on electronic home monitoring for at least two months.

The complaint shows a father was dropping off his son at the home when Karia led him toward the basement, where he saw the toddler hanging from a noose.

He released the child and fled with him.

The 16-month-old boy survived.
