Rhonda Carlson plans to enter a guilty plea in a mass murder case. She is charged with more than a dozen counts of capital murder.
In court Thursday, the judge scheduled Carlson's plea hearing for September 23 at 1:30 P.M.
She took a plea deal in the case to avoid the death penalty. She faces a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.
The co-defendant in one of the largest mass murder cases in of Madison County's history will appear in front of a judge Thursday morning. Court documents show Rhonda Carlson will be at the Madison County courthouse for a hearing at 11:00.
Carlson is charged with several counts of capital murder. She testified at her husband Christopher Henderson's murder trial as part of a plea deal to avoid the death penalty in the case. She is accused of killing 5 people, including Henderson's second wife and unborn child, in 2015.
Henderson was later convicted on all counts of capital murder, and the jury recommended he be sentenced to death. Henderson's sentencing is set for later next month.
Carlson is expected to be at the courthouse at 11 Thursday morning.
