A man will serve multiple prison sentences after attacking an infant in an Overland Park Walmart. 

Oleh Zhownirovych, 55, will serve consecutive sentences. The first sentence will be 11 months in prison and then he'll spend an additional six months the Johnson County Jail.

Police say Zhownirovych attempted to strangle the child in the checkout line with her mother.

The baby was treated on scene and recovered fully. 

He pleaded no contest in December.
