GREENVILLE — Bond in the amount of $75,000 was set for a woman accused of stabbing her husband last week in Greenville.
Angela D. Bergman, 31, of Greenville, had her initial appearance in Darke County Common Pleas Court Monday. She appeared before the court via video teleconference from the Darke County Jail. She is being charged with Felonious Assault, a second-degree felony.
Bergman reportedly attacked her husband, Anthony Bergman, 47, with multiple kitchen knives at McMiller’s Carryout, 601 Martin Street, across the street from their residence on the morning of April 27. Dispatch received 9-1-1 calls from multiple people reporting the incident.
The victim was transported to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton for treatment of his injuries. The Greenville Police Department arrest affidavit says he was stabbed “several times in the chest area.” Police are continuing to review details of the incident, including video evidence.
If convicted, Bergman could face up to eight years in prison and a fine of $15,000.
Common Pleas Court Judge Jonathan Hein set Bergman’s bond at $75,000, citing her lack of a prior criminal record, despite a recommendation from Darke County Prosecuting Attorney R. Kelly Ormsby that her bond should be set at $250,000.
Hein appointed Randall Breaden of Greenville as Bergman’s defense attorney. Her next court appearance is a preliminary hearing in Greenville Municipal Court on Thursday.
