Updated--A Thousand Oaks woman arrested Wednesday for attempted murder in a bat attack on a man she was living with will face reduced charges.
Instead of attempted murder, Ventura County prosecutors filed assault with a deadly weapon charges against 31-year-old Amanda Jaramillo.
She pleaded not guilty to that reduced charge and also denied a special allegation that she inflicted great bodily injury on the victim.
Jaramillo remains in the Ventura County Jail on $120,000 with a hearing scheduled for next Friday to see if she can be released.
Deputies say that Jaramillo is accused of using a baseball bat to attack a man she was staying with at his Oak Park residence.
Investigators say it happened around 4:50 AM Wednesday in the 6000 block of East Smoke Tree Avenue.
Deputies say during the course of the night Jaramillo struck the victim with the baseball bat a number of times in the head and body causing injuries that required hospitalization.
Jaramillo is reported to have told deputies she wanted to kill the victim.
