Secret Teshondra Huguley, 23, was charged by police with second-degree domestic violence, a felony.
Huguley already faces charges that she hid her 7-year-old daughter from Department of Human Resources workers investigating the death of a 5-year-old boy last month.
Anniston police Capt. Allen George said officers were dispatched Saturday morning just before 6 o’clock to a house on the 2800 block of McKleroy Avenue. Huguley told officers that her child’s father was at her home and refused to leave, George said.
George said while police were talking to the 22-year-old man, an officer noticed the victim had a cut on his hand. The man told police he was cut after Huguley brandished a kitchen knife and he struggled to take it away from her, George said.
George said the man had a small cut on his right hand. The victim refused medical treatment, the captain said.
Huguely was arrested at the scene and was in the Anniston City Jail this morning.
Bond is set at $5,000. A court appearance is scheduled for Sept. 30.
Huguley’s daughter was with her father, Vonta Montrell McClellan, last month on the day that police say McClellan beat 5-year-old Gregory Caver, who later died at Children’s Hospital in Birmingham.
McClellan is also charged with beating the girl in addition to facing capital murder charges related to Caver’s death.
Anniston police Capt. Allen George said last month that Huguley fled from DHR workers with her daughter and was later charged with tampering with physical evidence, a misdemeanor.
