Despite the accusations against her, Martinez looked directly into the TV cameras filming her first appearance hearing on Friday morning and shook her head as the judge read her charges.

The relative, identified as Hallie Romero, of Loganville, said Diana is expected to be in the hospital for two to three weeks.
