Status check scheduled for standoff mom still in hospital

CREATED Sep. 6, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The local mother accused of engaging police in a lengthy standoff was scheduled to appear in court this morning.

But, that did not happen because Sara Jones is still in a medically-induced coma.

Her husband was in court but did not want to talk to Action News.

Police say that Jones barricaded herself in her home with two of her children last week.

It ended about 24 hours later when police say that she shot at them and they shot her in the face.

She is facing several charges including attempted murder with a deadly weapon and first degree kidnapping.

A status check was scheduled for Oct. 4.
