ROCHESTER, Minn. – A woman accused of threatening her brothers with a knife has been acquitted on all charges.

Chenda Prom, 35 of Rochester, was arrested in July 2018 and charged with 2nd degree assault, threats of violence, and domestic assault. One of Prom’s brothers told law enforcement she asked him “Do you want me to cut your throat?”
