MERCER CO. (WVVA) - Dustie Beller was on trial for running over a woman with her car all for chainsaw.

While she was found not guilty of attempted murder, the jury did find her guilty of petty larceny, conspiracy, failure to stop and render aid, and malicious wounding.

The victim had this to say about the verdict. "Um very happy,” Mackenzie Ansley said. “To be expected -- the attempted murder charge. I knew coming into it, it was an iffy charge. And I'll take four out of five. And I'm happy with it."

Ansley was a cashier at the tractor supply in Bluefield, WV where she says February 8, 2013 she witnessed a man stealing a chainsaw.

She and her manager say they followed the man outside to stop the theft and to get the license plate number of the get-away car which they say Beller was driving.

Ansley says Beller ran her over with her car injuring her ankles and her right leg. Now she hopes Beller is never allowed behind the wheel again.

"She don't deserve a driver's license,” Ansley said. “I mean there's a lot of things that need to be taken away from her. She's an adult, that's how society works; she gets punished for what she did."

Beller defended herself on the stand Tuesday, saying she was just giving a friend a ride and he needed to get something from the store.

Her attorney says Ansley acted irrationally when she went after the vehicle and the prosecution could not prove Beller's intent to harm her.
