Medford, Ore. -- In a court appearance Tuesday, Susan Monica entered not-guilty pleas on all charges.

Despite the advice of her attorneys, she also asked the court for funds so her pigs could be butchered. 

"I would like the people of Rogue River to donate a small amount of money, so that I can have my pigs butchered and the meat given to the Rogue River Community Center."

The Rogue River woman is accused in a double homicide. Jackson County Sheriff deputies say they discovered human remains of two victims while serving a search warrant for suspected fraud on January 10th.

Monica is facing charges of:

  • Count 1 - Murder of another human being committed on or about August 1, 2012;
  • Count 2 - Murder of another human being committed on or about September 9, 2013;
