The preliminary hearing for Manling Williams, 28, who is accused of killing her husband with a sword and smothering their two young children in their beds at their Rowland Heights home was again delayed, officials said.
The hearing, at which a judge determines whether there is enough evidence to hold the defendant for trial, was scheduled for today (Tuesday) after numerous delays.
Deputy District Attorney Pak Kouch said the hearing was continued to Oct. 15 after a sealed motion was filed by the defense. She declined to comment further on the reason for the delay.
Neal Williams, 27, and his two sons, Devon, 7, and Ian, 3, were found dead in their home on the morning of Aug. 8, 2007.
Manling Williams, who initially told officials she was not home when the killings occurred, was arrested later that night on suspicion of murder.
