MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — A central Indiana woman has pleaded guilty to charges stemming from an attack during which police say she wrapped an electrical cord around a mother’s throat and demanding she hand over her 3-week-old daughter.

Thirty-five-year-old Judith Ann Walker of Anderson told a Delaware County judge Monday that because of drug abuse she remembers little about the June 2013 attack at the victim’s Muncie home.

The Star Press reports Walker pleaded guilty to burglary resulting in injuries and other charges. Prosecutors dropped an attempted murder charge in the plea deal. The judge scheduled sentencing for Oct. 1.

Authorities say Walker showed up at the home purporting to be a pest exterminator when she chocked the woman. The mother was able to flee from the house with her child.
