A Davenport woman charged with stabbing her husband in March has pleaded not guilty to multiple charges.
Shebra D. Waters, 34, waived her right to a formal arraignment and filed a written plea in Scott County District Court though her attorney, Jack Dusthimer.
She is charged with attempt to commit murder, willful injury resulting in serious injury, domestic abuse while displaying a weapon and domestic abuse assault-third offense.
The most serious charge, attempt to commit murder, is a Class B felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison.
Waters has a pretrial conference May 19. A trial date has been set for May 30.
She remained in the Scott County Jail Thursday on a $10,000 cash-only bond.
Shortly before 7 p.m. March 25, Davenport police responded to the 1800 block of West 5th Street for a report of a stabbing. Officers found Waters’ husband, who had a stab wound to his chest, according to an arrest affidavit.
Officers learned the man had been in a physical altercation with Waters and it escalated when she armed herself with two kitchen knives, according to the affidavit.
Waters then stabbed the man in the chest, which damaged an artery in his heart and required surgery to repair, according to the affidavit.
