Rebecca McBrain, the wife of Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain has been charged with domestic abuse after being arrested for an incident that happened at the couple's Florida home earlier this year.
BocaNewsNow.com reports that Rebecca attempted to stab someone with a decorative sword before throwing and hitting the victim with logs from a firepit in the couple's garden.
Although the victim is yet to be identified, the fact that Rebecca has been charged with domestic abuse indicates that the person was a resident of the home or a relative.
Rebecca was in court today (April 18) for sentencing and has a trial date set for May 3, 2013. The original incident is reported to have taken place on February 24 when Rebecca was released from Palm Beach County Jail on $3,000 bail.
