CHARLES CITY — A Charles City woman convicted of trying to kill her mother has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.
44-year-old Jennifer Bean was accused of being involved in a domestic dispute with her mother on November 6th of last year, with officers responding after a hangup of a 9-1-1 call. Bean was arrested the next day after authorities accused her of injecting her mother with insulin, which if it had not been treated, could have resulted in coma and eventual death.
It took a Floyd County jury about three hours to convict Bean in mid-August. District Judge Christopher Foy sentenced Bean on Monday to 25 years in prison. Attempted murder is a Class B forcible felony, meaning she’ll have to serve 70 percent of the sentence before being eligible for parole.
