GOSHEN, N. Y. -- The Poughkeepsie woman facing murder charges in the death of her fiancé earlier this year is scheduled to be in Orange County court Thursday for a status conference on the case, according to multiple reports.

Angelika Graswald, 35, pleaded not guilty to charges of second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

Authorities said she admitted to removing the plug from fiancé Vincent Viafore's kayak during a kayaking trip in the Hudson River in April. But her lawyer said her confession was coerced.

Graswald told the ABC News show “20/20” that she is innocent of the charges.
