Coronado’s family, including her husband, were present as the 30-year-old woman was brought into the Compton courtroom in a wheelchair. Coronado looked straight at the judge and never glanced at her family behind her. She was surrounded by deputies and her attorney, Stephen Allen.

Her husband, Rudy Coronado, who sat in front of the courtroom, broke out in tears as his wife responded in a low and soft-pitched voice to the judge’s questions.

At the end of the hearing, Allen made a statement on behalf of the family, saying Rudy Coronado supports his wife and thanked the community for its support.
