EVERETT, Wash. (AP) -- Everett, Wash., police say a woman accused of cutting her sleeping husband's neck and shoulder with a power saw has been jailed for investigation of domestic violence assault.

Police say they could hear the man shouting "You tried to cut my head off. You're going to jail" when they arrived at the home.

The Daily Herald reports that a judge kept bail at $250,000 when the woman appeared Monday in Everett District Court. The newspaper did not identify her.

Police say the 43-year-old woman told them she grabbed the reciprocating saw because there was an intruder who escaped out her daughter's window late Friday night.

Sgt. Robert Goetz says there was no evidence of an intruder and the window was fitted with a child lock that prevented it from opening more than a few inches.

The 36-year-old man was treated at a hospital.
