WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) - A judge has set bond at $100,000 for a North Dakota man facing an attempted murder charge after a stabbing at an apartment in Wahpeton.

KFGO-AM (https://bit.ly/1hmJBDe ) reports a judge in Wahpeton set the bond for 24-year-old Jesse Wetsit on Tuesday. Prosecutors are accusing the West Fargo man of stabbing a 23-year-old woman at least five times with a kitchen knife during an argument on Friday.

Authorities say the knife had a blade about 4 1/2 inches long. The woman was taken to a Fargo hospital. Her condition is unknown.

The judge on Tuesday also ordered Wetsit to have no contact with the victim. Court documents do not list an attorney for Wetsit. The charge against him carries a maximum punishment of 20 years in prison.
