DETROIT (AP) - A 29-year-old Detroit woman has been arraigned in the fatal stabbing of another woman during an argument on a public city bus.

Tiffanie Edwards was ordered held Friday without bond on a first-degree murder charge. She arraigned via video from a police lockup. Her next court date is Sept. 4.

The 50-year-old victim was stabbed in the face and body with a knife about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday on the city’s west side. Her attacker ran off after the stabbing.

Edwards was arrested Thursday after a bus passenger’s cellphone video of the attack was aired by news outlets. It led to a tip to police.

The Detroit Transportation Department has put security cameras and police on buses to improve safety.
