PORT ALLEN, LA (WAFB) -

Bond has been set at $500,000 for a woman accused in her husband's murder.

Monique Kitts of Port Allen pleaded not guilty to principle to second-degree murder and conspiracy to murder in Judge Robin Free's courtroom Wednesday morning.

She was arrested in mid-March in connection with the shooting death of Corey Kitts. According to investigators, he was shot three times at point blank range while asleep in his Addis home in July 2010.

A trial date has not been set.

Two men, Corey Knox and Karl Howard, also face murder charges in the case. There has been no word on when they will be arraigned.

Corey Knox was picked up by US Marshals in New Orleans on March. He is charged with first-degree murder. Karl Howard, also charged with first-degree murder, turned himself in to West Baton Rouge Parish deputies the day before Know was caught.
