A Whitefish woman is charged with felony assault with a weapon after her husband was stabbed in the chest.

The Missoulian reports Flathead County prosecutors filed the charge against 39-year-old AnnMari Helt Newton on Wednesday. She remained jailed Thursday.

Newton was arrested Monday evening after Whitefish police responded to a report of a stabbing at a residence not far from the police station.
