Woman Charged With Aggravated Assault

She's accused of beating a woman with a baseball bat and cutting her throat. Now police have charged the suspect with aggravated assault. That attack happened last Friday, March 25th, in Hughes Springs. That's about 20 miles east of Daingerfield in Cass County.

Police say 35-year-old Marla McCord hit Janice Wellborn in the arm, then cut her throat with a hunting knife.

Wellborn is the mother of a newborn and friends say McCord has recently told her friends she was nine months pregnant. Police say she's not pregnant and friends say her friend's baby may have been the motive behind the attack.
