The boyfriend suffered a non-life-threatening laceration about an inch long on his throat. He refused to go to the hospital, and EMS cleared him to stay home, police said.

Hendrix denied the stabbing, saying "there was no physical altercation between them," police said. She also couldn't remember what the argument had been about. 

She's facing a felony charge of aggravated assault, misdemeanors of recklessly endangering another person and simple assault, and a summary harassment charge.

Hendrix was arraigned Dec. 3 before District Judge Jennifer J.P. Clancy. Bail was set at $40,000. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Dec. 17 before District Judge Richard T. Thomas.
