      CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - A Charlottesville woman charged with assaulting the wife of Virginia House Minority Leader David J. Toscano is set to appear in court.

      Claire Kennedy Ogilvie's arraignment is scheduled for Thursday in Charlotteville General District Court. It was originally set for March 27 but was postponed to allow both sides to gather more information.

      Ogilvie is charged with burglary, abduction and malicious wounding in the alleged Feb. 24 assault on Toscano's wife, Nancy Tramontin. Police say Tramontin was treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

      In a statement released after the attack, Tramontin said she and the 35-year-old Ogilvie became friends in 2010. She said they distanced themselves from Ogilvie after she developed an "unsettling interest" in the family.
