Plackowska's attorney requested for a substitution of judges Friday and her case has now been reassigned to Judge Robert Kleeman, according to the Daily Herald.
Her attorney also requested and was granted an interpreter for Plackowska's case, according to the Chicago Tribune. Plackowska moved to Naperville from Poland 12 years ago, but is not a U.S. citizen and had been living in the city on a vacation visa, authorities said.
Authorities said Plackowska’s SUV will be released to her husband at the request of her attorney once investigators have finished processing it for evidence, the Daily Herald reports.
Prosecutors said 40-year-old Elzbieta Plackowska told her 7-year-old son Justin and 5-year-old Olivia Dworakowski to get on their knees and pray before fatally stabbing both children nearly 100 times Tuesday.
Plackowska was charged Wednesday night with two counts of first-degree murder. She appeared in DuPage County Court on Thursday morning, where Judge John Kinsella ordered that she be held without bond.
Her next court hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 21.
