    Austin woman accused of killing friend, stealing her baby to appear in court Monday | KLBK | KAMC | EverythingLubbock.com
    The Austin woman charged with killing her best friend, kidnapping the woman’s baby and trying to pass it off as her own child will appear in court virtually Monday in Travis County.

    [...]

    This is Fieramusca’s first hearing since new Travis County District Attorney Jose Garza took office. His office will try this high-profile case that made headlines across the country.

    Fieramusca has been in jail since her arrest. It’s been more than 15 months since Broussard’s death, and Fieramusca has still yet to appear in a courtroom.

    The court coordinator tells KXAN during Monday’s hearing they will discuss the case and give a status update. They confirmed everyone will appear, including Fieramusca.

    UPDATE: Magen Fieramusca's attorneys requested the bond reduction part of the hearing be canceled. Instead, a status hearing is still planned.

    It's on this live feed here but it will disappear as the live feed progresses - you need to back track to about 28 minutes ago to replay it

    Heidi Broussard case: Murder suspect appears in court Monday | kvue.com

    3/22/21

    AUSTIN, Texas — The woman accused of kidnapping and killing her longtime friend appeared in a virtual Travis County court Monday for the first time since last year.

    Magen Fieramusca, 35, is charged with capital murder, two counts of kidnapping, and tampering with evidence. She’s being held in the Travis County Correctional Complex with a bond of $1.6 million for all of the charges.

    [..]

    While not much happened during the hearing Monday, we saw her for the first time in over a year. She hasn't appeared before a Travis County judge since March 2020. The next action is scheduled for April 28 – a meeting with attorneys and the judge for updates.

    Since it's Capital Murder, is she eligible for the DP? Has the DA said if they'll be going for it? I'm opposed, but this is one case that makes me waiver a bit.

    In Texas Cap Murder can be punished by life of DP. As far as I know nothing has been said about what they are going to do.

    Since I'm SO close to the case I keep going back and forth on whether or not I think she should get life or the DP.

    At this point I just want a conviction, that'll come eventually.
