MANCHESTER, Iowa (AP) - An eastern Iowa judge accused of assaulting her husband has pleaded not guilty.

Forty-nine-year-old Stephanie Rattenborg, of Manchester, entered the plea Monday. Her next hearing is set for Aug. 10.

Court documents say Randall Rattenborg told an officer June 24 that his wife threw a water bottle at him and began hitting him because she’d learned he was having an extramarital affair. He suffered a minor lip injury.

The documents say Stephanie Rattenborg admitted throwing the water bottle but denied hitting her husband.

Rattenborg is an associate judge for Iowa’s 1st Judicial District, which covers northeast Iowa.
