AUSTIN, Minn. – Over a year after it happened, a Florida woman is sentenced for a bloody beating in southern Minnesota.
Mikayla Jeanette Wenzel, 24 of Fort Lauderdale, FL, pleaded guilty Friday to one count of 5th degree assault. The Austin Police Department says Wenzel attacked a juvenile female at the Rodeway Inn on November 24, 2018.

Wenzel has been ordered to spend one year on unsupervised probation and pay $135 in court fees. Court documents state Wenzel was living in Duluth in 2018.
