Reanetta Moore is accused of the non-fatal stabbing of Robert Joiner, 35. Authorities say the couple was in the basement of their home in the 9100 block of Montrose around 6:30 a.m. Sunday when they had an argument and Moore allegedly grabbed a sword and cut her husband several times. He sustained serious injuries.

Police said the incident was a "domestic situation" but did not elaborate on the argument that preceded the sword attack.

Moore is charged with assault with intent to murder, assault with intent to do great bodily harm, felonious assault and aggravated assault. She was arraigned Wednesday in 36th District Court in Detroit and given a $1 million cash bond by Magistrate Malaika Ramsey-Heath.

Detroit police officers found Joiner lying on the living room floor bleeding from stab wounds in his left side and the back of his neck. A sword was found in the dining room of the home covered with blood. Police confiscated the weapon.

Moore was arrested at the scene. Joiner was taken to a hospital, where is he continuing to be treated for his injuries.

Moore is scheduled for a probable cause conference at 8:30 a.m. Feb. 3before 36th District Court Judge Roberta Archer.
