Woman accused of choking Walmart greeter gets jail

A judge in Ohio has sentenced a woman to 15 days in jail for choking a 71-year-old Walmart greeter who asked to see a receipt as the woman left the store.

Elyria (eh-LEER'-ee-uh) Municipal Judge Lisa Locke Graves sentenced 49-year-old Toni Duncan on Thursday for what she calls the "absolutely reprehensible" attack last March. Duncan was sentenced after pleading no contest and being found guilty of assault.

According to The (Elyria) Chronicle-Telegram (http://bit.ly/nJG0eS ), the defendant also was ordered to take an anger management course by year's end and stay away from the Elyria Walmart and the victim for five years.

The woman's 23-year-old daughter was sentenced to three days in jail for disorderly conduct and also was ordered to stay away from Walmart for five years.
