Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The woman accused in a violent crime spree that ended in murder faced a judge on Thursday.

Natasha Jackson, 35, faces charges that include first degree murder, attempted murder, kidnapping, home invasion and robbery.

A judge placed Jackson's bail at $400,000. The prosecutor is asking for a hearing to request that she be held without bail.

Police said she and an accomplice named Cody Winters carjacked a freeway service patrol worker Tuesday morning.

Police said the two had the man drive them to a neighborhood off Tropicana and Sandhill, where they went up to a home and stabbed the woman who lived there.

That woman's husband, Richard Ramos, was shot and killed. The violence didn't end there.

Winters then went into another home and shot a woman there. Police eventually shot and killed him.

Jackson was arrested and booked into the Clark County Detention Center. Her preliminary hearing is set for Aug. 13 at 1:30 p.m.
