MARYSVILLE, Wash. (AP) - A Marysville woman who was arrested last month on suspicion of firing a gun while arguing with her husband of more than 30 years has been charged with felony assault.

The Daily Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1JnnuYj) that 54-year-old Starlene Roth pleaded not guilty to second-degree domestic violence assault and was being held on $250,000 bail.

Police say Roth was arrested May 9 for investigation of attempted first-degree murder. Her lawyer, Brian Ashbach, argued that the police report didn’t provide any evidence that Roth was trying to kill her husband.

In a court affidavit, police Detective Craig Bartl wrote that the Roth’s husband said his wife began complaining that he hadn’t been able to do anything around the house after he returned home from a hospital treatment for a medical condition.
