DULUTH -- A woman remains jailed Friday after allegedly holding a knife to the neck of an anti-abortion demonstrator in Duluth.

Mechelle Tallulah Hall, of Superior, Wis., is charged with second-degree assault. Bail is set at $9,000.


The Duluth News Tribune reports that the 25-year-old Hall blurted out at her arraignment Wednesday, "I know what I did was wrong." It says the judge advised her it wasn't the appropriate place to comment on the facts of her case.
