Trial ordered in slashing of Blige’s father

T. Blige

– A judge ordered a Michigan woman to stand trial on charges she stabbed the father of R&B singer Mary J. Blige during a domestic dispute.

Cheryl White, 50, of Battle Creek faces up to life in prison if convicted of assault with attempt to murder, the Battle Creek Inquirer reported.

White’s boyfriend, Thomas Blige, 63, testified Monday that White attacked him with a knife Jan. 23 after he caught her slashing his tires.

“I was up early getting ready for school and I saw Cheryl White slashing my tires,” Blige said. “As I went to her, she started slashing me. She said something out of anger like, ‘You won’t mess with me.’ ”

Jeffrey Schroder, an attorney for White, argued that Blige’s testimony about the incident was unclear.

“I don’t know how anyone can believe that witness,” Schroder said.

Blige, who was cut in the throat, lung and arm, said he ran into a friend’s apartment, where he was staying after a domestic dispute with White the day before.

Calhoun County District Judge Frank Line ordered the case to circuit court for trial.
