A woman accused of holding a knife to the throat of an anti-abortion demonstrator in Duluth has pleaded not guilty to an assault charge.

Twenty-six-year-old Mechelle Tallulah Hall of Superior, Wis., told a judge in St. Louis County District Court Wednesday that she was wrong in threatening the demonstrator outside a women's clinic last month.

Hall is accused of holding the knife to the neck of a 21-year-old woman who was handing out pamphlets outside the Building for Women. The woman was not injured.

The Duluth News Tribune says Hall's next court appearance on second-degree assault is Feb. 16.
