    PORT ORCHARD, Wash. - A Bremerton woman has been charged with second-degree assault after authorities say she stabbed her husband in the arm with a samurai sword.

    The Kitsap Sun reports the man called police early Wednesday morning and was later flown to a Seattle hospital.

    The man told police that he had been fighting with his wife and demanded that she leave their house. He says the woman grabbed the sword mounted on a wall and impaled him as he ran up to her.

    According to police, the sword caused a 4-inch (10-centimeter) wound down to the bone.

    The woman first told officers that her husband had cut himself during the struggle, but she later claimed it was self-defense.

    The woman has pleaded not guilty to the charge in Kitsap County Superior Court.
