Brandon, Florida - Hillsborough deputies say 42-year-old Annette Smith was angry at her sister, so she sliced her with a samurai sword.

Smith was arrested at her Brandon home early Wednesday morning.

Authorities say Smith was waving the sword around and yelling at her sister when she made a 4-inch cut into her sister's abdomen.

The arrest affidavit states the sister tried to grab the sword, and was cut on her left fingers and hand. She has a severed tendon in her middle finger that will require surgery.

Smith remains in the Orient Road jail without bail. She's been charged with assault and battery with a deadly weapon.
