WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita man has been sentenced to 11 years in prison for trying to kill his 86-year-old mother.

Fifty-three-year-old Glenn Fishburn was sentenced Wednesday for attempted second-degree murder and kidnapping after he attacked his mother with a baseball bat and machete in April.

Police say Fishburn became upset with his mother when she confronted him about his drinking. She suffered cuts and broken bones.

The Wichita Eagle reports Fishburn originally was charged with attempted first-degree murder but pleaded guilty in July to the reduced charge.
