AKRON, Ohio - A 37-year-old Akron woman will spend more than a decade behind bars for two separate attacks.
Teri Garko, 37, earlier pleaded guilty to attempted murder, felonious assault and assault of an emergency medical worker.
In April 2011, Garko went to the ER at Akron General Medical Center. Upset at what she felt was a long delay in being looked at and treated, Garko attacked the psychiatric technician who was assigned to check her vitals.
Garko reportedly punched and kneed the technician numerous times in her face, chest and spine, before slamming the woman's head into the floor and ripping out a patch of hair and part of the woman's scalp.
While out on bond for the hospital attack, Garko broke into the home of her ex-boyfriend and stabbed him and his female friend as they slept.
Both victims survived the attack.
Garko was sentenced to spend the next 11 years in prison for the crimes.
