Mich. woman fined for stabbing husband with fork during restaurant argument

PLYMOUTH, Mich. - A woman accused of stabbing her husband with a fork during an argument at a restaurant has pleaded no contest to reduced charges of being drunk and disorderly.

Canton Township police and the Wayne County prosecutor's office had pressed a felonious assault case against Kelly Campbell-Baumgartner, despite her husband's objections.

But a county judge dismissed the felony charge, and Campbell-Baumgartner entered the plea Monday in exchange for the dismissal of a misdemeanour assault and battery charge.

The judge ordered her to pay $350 in fines.

William Baumgartner earlier denied he had been stabbed in the April incident and said he had no interest in pressing charges against his wife.
