Lawyer Sangeet Kaur Deo says Samantha Jones, 51, was asked Tuesday by a court official if she understood the charge, which carries the mandatory death sentence by hanging, and that her client said yes.

Police found a blood-stained kitchen knife in the couple's home where John William Jones was found dead on Oct. 18. Kaur says Jones didn't enter a plea as the magistrate court has no jurisdiction to hear a murder case and that the case is expected to be transferred to the high court. She said Tuesday that Jones was "very, very overwhelmed" and grieved for her husband.
