Pazienza, who was out on $500,000 bail her mom posted, remained stone-faced as the judge ordered her to be held in jail pending trial during a hearing in Manhattan Supreme Court.

The 26-year-old Long Island native pleaded not guilty through her lawyers on an indictment charging her with first-degree manslaughter and two counts of second-degree assault in the death of Barbara Gustern.
