FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — South Florida prosecutors have dropped charges accusing the wife of Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall of stabbing him.

The Broward County State Attorney's Office said Friday it would not pursue an aggravated battery charge against 26-year-old Michi Nogami-Marshall. A charge of violating pre-trial conditions is also being dropped.

Nogami-Marshall was arrested in April after Marshall was stabbed in the abdomen during a domestic dispute. He was treated and released from the hospital the next day.

Nogami-Marshall would only say that she acted in self-defense. Marshall told police that he slipped and fell onto broken glass from a vase. Police found no blood on the broken glass and charged Marshall's wife with the stabbing.
