FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -

A woman charged with aggravated manslaughter and child neglect in the stabbing death of her son appeared in court again Thursday.

A judge set bond for Deanna De Jesus at $350,000.

Police said De Jesus did nothing as her husband, William De Jesus, fatally shot a man, then stabbed her two sons, killing the 9-year-old and badly wounding the 7-year-old, in an incident Feb. 9 at Highland Woods RV Park in Deerfield Beach.

William De Jesus stabbed his wife, who then started to protest, before killing himself, police said. Investigators said Deanna De Jesus did not call for help, although her two sons had been stabbed and a SWAT team was surrounding the RV.

Deanna De Jesus and her 7-year-old son were critically wounded but survived.

Deanna De Jesus, 37, is charged with aggravated manslaughter and child neglect.
