(HELENA) Mariee Zitnik appeared via video in Justice Court on Wednesday, charged with assault with a weapon and partner-family member assault.
Deputies were dispatched to Moose Creek campground southwest of Helena just after 9 p.m. on Tuesday for a report of a man lying in the road.
The man claimed Zitnik tried to kill him.
According to court documents, the man told police he and Zitnik got into an argument Monday morning and that she had punched him in the face and thrown rocks at him, and later in the day hit him with the blunt end of a knife.
Investigators say the man’s eyes were almost swollen shut and he had cuts, scrapes, and bruises on his face.
Bond for Zitnik was set at $40,000.
