Prosecutors brought a murder charge against a 50-year-old woman accused of stabbing a young girl to death in an undeveloped Las Vegas-area housing tract and later slashing a casino co-worker while that woman dealt blackjack at a Las Vegas Strip resort.

Brenda Stokes Wilson's lawyer, Tony Liker, told a judge Wednesday that Stokes Wilson will plead not guilty to all six charges now pending against her in the Dec. 21 death of 10-year-old Jade Morris and the attack on 44-year-old Joyce Rhone at the Bellagio.

A judge set an evidence hearing for March 28 and ordered Wilson held without bail.

Prosecutor Robert Daskas says DNA tests found the girl's blood on clothing Stokes Wilson wore that day, and in the car Stokes Wilson borrowed to take the girl Christmas shopping.
