Weeks was indicted and charged with aggravated assault, two counts of simple battery and making terroristic threats.

Investigators said Weeks told his wife that he would kill her during the attack.

Weeks and Bynum founded Global Destiny Ministries in Duluth.

Weeks will be back in court once his trial date is set.
