ALBANY – A Idaho man has been sentenced on attempted murder charges in Albany.
It happened on Morton Avenue last May.
Thomas Ryder, 45, tried to stop a 65-year-old relative from breathing by putting his hands over her head.
Ryder then hit her in the head with his fist and a pair of headphones.
He faces five years of post-release supervision when he is released.
