A judge has ruled that a Northampton County woman who's accused of murdering the father of her four children will face the death penalty.

Elizabeth Collazo is charged with shooting and killing Mark Werkheiser inside his home in Williams Township last March.

District Attorney John Morganelli said he would seek the death penalty in the case and Collazo filed an appeal but Thursday that motion was denied.

Collazo's trial is scheduled to begin on January 7th.
