Wife gets 30 days for 'big surprise'


A Utah woman was sentenced to 30 days at home after she promised her husband a "big surprise" during a date -- but instead beat him in the head with a hammer while he was blindfolded. The man, who had been spun around before the attack, escaped with minor injuries. Amy Walker Ricks' lawyer compared her to someone suffering PTSD during war and blamed the victim for emotional abuse. The victim's brother asked the judge to sentence her to three years.
