Sasha Joy Anderson and Christopher William Darmofal have a preliminary hearing scheduled for June 1 at 10 a.m.
A man and a woman, chased off by a Houghton County homeowner defending his property with a chainsaw, face first-degree home invasion charges.
Forty-year-old Sasha Joy Anderson of South Range and 32-year-old Christopher William Darmofal of Warren were arraigned Monday morning in Houghton County District Court.
First-degree home invasion is a felony with a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
Darmofal is also charged with carrying a concealed weapon, felonious assault and malicious destruction of personal property.
The Houghton County Sheriff's Office says around 4:00 a.m. Saturday in South Range, Darmofal pulled a knife on a man inside his home. The man defended himself with a chainsaw, and Darmofal and Anderson ran away. Deputies found them at another home in South Range.
Investigators say no one was hurt. Anderson's bond was set at $300 cash. Darmofal's was set at $5,000 cash. Their preliminary hearings will be set within three weeks.
