(MOBILE, Ala.) - Attempted murder - those are the charges prosecutors hope to pin on 27 year old Jessie Allen Reid, and 53 year old Sandra Joy Jarman.
And it all stems from an incident last month at the Wal-Mart in Semmes.
That's when, deputies say, the two tried to attack street preacher Gene Duffy as he delivered a sermon in the store parking lot.
Witnesses say two good Samaritans rushed to the preacher's aid. Both men suffered serious stab wounds in the process. One of them was Kenneth Cushman.
During a preliminary hearing, a judge left Jarmon's 100 thousand dollars bond in place, and continued to deny Reid any bond at all. And he did something else - he sent both cases to a Mobile County Grand Jury to consider putting both on trial for attempted murder.
The preliminary hearing was also a chance to hear details about this crime, details we'd never heard before.
And part of that testimony, from sheriff's deputy Anthony Peak, was shocking - that witnesses at a nearby credit union saw a man with a shiny weapon threatening the preacher and that when the two good Samaritans ran out to help, the woman attacked both of them, stabbing them repeatedly with a knife, telling one of them "Who's bad now? Who wants some?"
Then, according to the deputy, a man drove the attackers away from the scene in a waiting pickup truck.
All three were later arrested. Both Jarman and Reid are currently charged with attempted murder.
But Reid's attorney believes his client isn't getting a fair shake. " But as far as what we have here, I don't believe, for Mr. Reed, attempted murder is an appropriate charge at this time."
Both remain behind bars.
