Williams, 45, has been incarcerated on a $520,000 bond since January 30. She had initially been awaiting sentencing after taking a plea deal in the case, but following a "48 Hours" interview in which prosecutors said Williams denied portions of her guilty plea to the charge of deadly conduct, that deal was revoked.

In what would have been her sentencing hearing the lesser charges in February, Williams maintained her innocence, and a judge instead ordered that she go to trial - for murder.

"48 Hours" featured the Williams case in a recent broadcast, "Temptation in Texas."

In a May 14 motion, prosecutors argued to revoke the $520,000 bond, saying that Williams "poses a substantial flight risk" as well as a risk to her 6-year-old daughter, reports CultureMap Dallas.

"It is reasonably likely that Williams would attempt to take that daughter with her should she flee the jurisdiction," the motion reads.

A judge agreed, granting the request. A new bond hearing will be held some time in the future.

Williams initially told police that an intruder killed her husband in their Dallas-area home, and later changed her story, saying that her husband killed himself and that she cleaned up the crime scene in order to hide the suicide from their young daughter.
