Phoenix mother enters plea in knife-threat case

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) -

A Phoenix woman accused of threatening two of her children with a butcher knife on Christmas night 2011 has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 33-year-old Jutrina Tillman entered her plea Tuesday. She's scheduled to be sentenced on April 15.

Tillman was arrested in late December 2011 on suspicion of two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Police say they received a frantic 911 call from a sobbing 13-year-old girl who said her mother had a 6- to 8-inch knife and allegedly was attempting to kill her and her 5-year-old brother.

The girl told police that her mother had been drinking alcohol all night and was getting mad at her brother for playing video games he got as Christmas gifts.
