A 53-year-old woman charged with attempted murder had be restrained when a judge told her she'd be held on no bond.
Police arrested Blanca Regalado on Saturday.
According to an arrest affidavit, police responded to an apartment in Miami in reference to a stabbing. When officers arrived, fire rescue was transporting Regalado's husband to the Jackson Memorial Hospital after he suffered six stab wounds to his upper abdomen, right arm, and right leg.
Inside the victim's apartment, Regalado told police, "I did it. My husband is a drunk. I'm tired of him and I stabbed him," according to the affidavit. She also told police her husband becomes aggressive when he drinks and that she prepared a Swiss Army knife in her dresser for the next time they fought.
Regalado's husband is listed in serious condition. She appeared in bond court Monday.
"You are being charged with attempted felony murder," said Miami-Dade County Circuit Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat. "Do you have money for a private attorney?"
Regalado appeared confused when asked.
"Let's relax. Just answer my question. Do you have money for a private attorney?" Rodriguez-Chomat asked again.
"Si," she responded.
But when Rodriguez-Chomat told her she would be held without bond, Regalado began screaming.
"My husband broke my leg!" she yelled. "Please! No! No! No!"
Regalado had to be restrained in her wheelchair. She is expected back in court Tuesday for a probable cause hearing.
