A woman accused of stabbing the father of singer Mary J. Blige has been arraigned on a charge of attempted murder.

A judge set $500,000 bond Friday for Cheryl White of Battle Creek. Police say she stabbed 63-year-old Thomas Blige in the neck Thursday outside his Battle Creek apartment. He's in critical condition at a Kalamazoo hospital.

Police say Blige was attacked while confronting White, who was deflating his vehicle tires. Defense attorney Jeff Schroder says self-defense will be White's likely defense.

Schroder tells the Battle Creek Enquirer that White and Blige had dated for five years.

Mary Blige is a Grammy award winner whose hits include "Real Love," ''No More Drama" and "Family Affair.
