Woman enters 'not guilty' plea in home invasion case
News

LAS VEGAS -- Natasha Jackson, the woman police identified as an accomplice in a crime spree that left two people dead, entered a not guilty plea in court.

Jackson, 35, appeared in Clark County District Court Monday morning for her arraignment. She faces murder, attempted murder, kidnapping, home invasion and robbery charges for her alleged role in a crime spree on July 29 that left a southeast neighborhood terrorized.

According to police, Jackson and Cody Winters, who was eventually shot and killed by police, stole a Nevada Department of Transportation vehicle and then forced their way into homes, shooting and killing homeowner Richard Ramos and severely injuring another woman in another home.

Jackson's court-appointed lawyer, Danny Silverstein, said outside of court that Jackson has been treated in the past for unspecified mental illness and doesn't remember a previous court appearance following her arrest.

Jackson's trail date has been set for March 9, 2015.
