CROZET, Va. - Albemarle County police have charged a woman with attempted murder after she allegedly tried to give her husband an unnecessary shot of insulin without his knowledge.

Search warrants allege Theresa Lynn Brady of Crozet was attempting to inject James Brady on Tuesday morning.

Instead, media outlets report, James Brady woke up to find his wife next to him with a flashlight after she unintentionally scraped his stomach with her fingernail. It says when Brady questioned her, she indicated she was giving him medicine "to make him feel better."

The warrant says James Brady had recently been ill and that she works in the medical profession.

Theresa Brady is being held without bond at the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail. Jail records didn't indicate whether Brady has an attorney.
