BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Officials say a murder suspect was removed from a Benton County courthouse after she reportedly bit a deputy.
The Benton County Daily Record reports (http://is.gd/u6V51t) that Huong Thi Truong was in court Monday so a judge could schedule a hearing to consider results from her mental evaluation. She's charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of a man at her front door.
Jail Capt. Chris Sparks says Truong started screaming while she was in a holding cell after her hearing and that she reportedly bit a deputy on the finger as she was being removed from the cell.
Sparks says Truong was physically carried out of the courthouse. Prosecutors say she could face additional charges because of the incident.
An attorney for Truong couldn't be reached Tuesday morning.
