Tichelman was accused of killing Google executive Forrest Timothy Hayes with a heroin injection on Hayes' yacht. A surveillance video of the incident showed Tichelman stepping over the victim's body and even finishing a glass of wine before leaving the yacht. She did not phone 911 or provide first aid.

At the arraignment, Tichelman's lawyer called her "a wounded bird" that has been frightened and demonized.

Tichelman's trial date was set for Oct. 20.
