A Quincy woman pleads guilty but mentally ill to a reduced charge Wednesday in Adams County Circuit Court in connection with the shooting of her husband in July.

34 year old Amanda Perry entered the negotiated plea to one count of attempted aggravated battery with a firearm.

Perry was immediately sentenced to nine years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

Perry is alleged to have shot 43 year old Michael Perry in the face in their home as the result of an argument.
