PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A Phoenix woman accused of threatening two of her children with a butcher knife Christmas night 2011 was sentenced to one year in jail and three years of supervised probation Tuesday.

Jutrina Tillman, 33, was sentenced by Judge Jeanne Garcia after pleading guilty in March to disorderly conduct.

Tillman, 33, 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.
