An Avonside woman has admitted stabbing her partner in the lower back during a domestic fracas last November.

Michelle Te Aroha Marsh, 43, caused the 2-centimetre stab wound after she was put in a choker hold and hit in the face with a frying pan.

Judge Jane Farish said during a sentencing-indication hearing in the Christchurch District Court today that Marsh's reaction had "overstepped the mark".

Marsh accepted the indication and pleaded guilty to the charge of assault with a weapon.

Judge Farish remanded her on bail for sentencing on August 5.

She called for a pre-sentence report and a report on Marsh's suitability for home detention.
