FLORENCE, Ala. (WHNT) - Autumn Wood appeared in court today with her family for her pretrial hearing.

According to her lawyers, her trial is ready to start in less than two weeks. She appeared to be calm, cool and collected during her time in the courtroom.

After two long years, Autumn Wood is being tried for the death of Brooklyn Hollins. According to investigators, in March of 2012, Wood stabbed Hollins to death at a house party in Florence. Wood turned herself in to police after leaving the party.

She is being accused of murder and was set to be tried as an adult. Her attorney filed for youthful offender status because at the time of the murder she was only seventeen. Circuit judge Mike Jones denied that request earlier this year.  In March of 2013, Wood entered a plea of not guilty by reason of severe mental disease or defect at the time of the stabbing.

    I will never forget your smug photo upon your arrest. You are going to jail little girl. Stupidity and cruelty, while unsavory, are not mental diseases. You chose a hard path. Maybe the next 25 years you spend in prison will be time enough for you to grow up.
