A Rowland Heights woman accused of stabbing her husband with a sword and smothering their two boys with a pillow pleaded not guilty today to murder.
Manling Tsang Williams entered pleas in Superior Court to three counts of murder with special-circumstance allegations of multiple murder.
Prosecutors have not decided whether to seek the death penalty.
The 28-year-old Williams has been jailed without bail since her arrest last month.
Authorities say Williams told them she returned from shopping on August 8th and discovered the bodies of her 27-year-old husband and
their 7-year-old and 3-year-old sons.
But investigators say she told a neighbor she had gone for a drive the night before to "cool off" and found the bodies when she returned the next morning.
Authorities also didn't find any sign of forced entry into the family home and no sign of theft.
