LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- The woman accused of slashing a co-worker’s face on the Strip made her first appearance today before a judge.

Brenda Stokes Wilson, 50, is accused of cutting a co-worker's face with a razor blade. Wilson worked as a blackjack dealer at the Bellagio.

After her arrest, it was revealed that she was the last person to see a missing a 10-year-old girl that led to this outburst in court this morning.

Jade Morris has been missing since 5 p.m. Friday. She was last seen Wilson. Wilson has not been charged with anything related to Jade’s disappearance.

In a police report, Wilson says she had been receiving harassing phone calls from a fellow dealer at the Bellagio. She says she thought they were friends but felt she had been backstabbed.

According to the report, Wilson confronted the woman at the dealer's table, got into an argument and slashed the woman's face with a razor blade. A casino patron held her down until security arrived.

Wilson, also in the report, had gone to a doctor earlier in the week, saying she felt like she might hurt somebody, and that she used Xanax in the past.

In court, Wilson says she is trying to get her private lawyer. The judge gave her until Friday to secure an attorney.
