RICHMOND, Va. -- Sisters Jonae Cox, 21, and Shamia Cox, 20, appeared before a judge at the Manchester Courthouse in Richmond on Tuesday morning via videoconference. The women were arraigned on malicious wounding charges that stemmed from an argument on a GRTC bus Monday, police said.

The judge denied the Cox sisters bond and appointed each an attorney.

The two are accused of stabbing a woman aboard the bus about 3:30 p.m. Monday, near the intersection of North Bowe and West Broad Streets. The female victim was rushed to VCU Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Both sisters are set to appear back in court August 28, 2014, at 9:30 a.m.
