A Detroit police officer will stand trial for allegedly attempting to kill her husband, Local 4 reported.
Officer Tamieka Moorehead of the 11th Precinct appeared at a preliminary examination hearing Tuesday on charges of assault with intent to commit murder.
Investigators say Moorehead shot her husband, Donnell, in the neck on Aug. 17 at their home on Winthrop Street in Detroit.
Moorehead apparently believed her husband was cheating on her with another woman.
Donnell testified Tuesday in a whisper because of his neck wound, Local 4 reported.
Officer Moorehead's attorney reportedly attempted to establish a pattern of domestic abuse in contrast with Donnell's calm demeanor on the stand.
The defense accused Donnell of slamming his wife's head to the ground during an alleged incident on June 24.
Moorehead was bound over Tuesday to stand trial. She is currently suspended from the police force without pay.
If Moorehead is convicted of the charges, she could face life in prison.
