Trial date set in Rowland Heights triple-slaying case

ROWLAND HEIGHTS — More than three years after a man was fatally slashed with a sword and his two children smothered to death, the trial for a woman suspected in the slayings is expected to begin next week.
Manling Tsang Williams, 30, is charged with the Aug. 8, 2007, murders of her husband Neal Williams, 27, and their two sons Ian, 3, and Devon, 7, at the home they shared in the 18200 block of Camino Bello.
After appearing briefly in Pomona Superior Court Wednesday, Manling Williams was ordered to return Monday for trial, court officials said.
The jury selection process is scheduled to begin Tuesday, officials added.
Manling Williams faces the possibility of the death sentence if convicted due to the special allegations of multiple murder and lying in wait, Los Angeles County District Attorney’s officials said.
Neal Williams was slashed 97 times with a sword and the children with smothered with pillows in their beds, investigators said.
After initially denying the killings, investigators said Manling Williams ultimately confessed to them.
Little has been revealed in regard to the motive in the case, other than an argument between Neal and Manling Williams the night before the bodies were discovered.
