ROUNDUP — A 26-year-old woman accused of stabbing another woman in Two Dot in Wheatland County will undergo a mental health evaluation at the Montana State Hospital in Warm Springs, a judge ruled Thursday.

Gina Marie Berg was arraigned on charges of attempted deliberate homicide and assault on a peace officer during a brief appearance before District Judge Randall Spaulding in Roundup.

Berg pleaded not guilty after acknowledging that she understood her rights as explained by Spaulding.

Berg, of Harlowton, is accused of stabbing Becky Dana at her home in Two Dot on Jan. 22. Authorities say Dana was stabbed several times in the abdomen and arm with a chef's knife.

Berg allegedly fled in a car and led officers on a 90-mile chase to Acton, where she is accused of ramming a Wheatland County Sheriff's Office patrol car.

A motive for the stabbing has not been disclosed. Dana was treated at a hospital in Harlowton and has been released, authorities said.

Berg has been held in the Yellowstone County Detention Facility since her arrest. Spaulding continued her detention without bond after her public defender, Douglas Day, said he would not seek a different bond at the arraignment hearing.
