ST. CHARLES COUNTY (KMOV.com) -

The woman accused in a bizarre murder plot in St. Charles County appeared in court Friday as attorneys prepare for her day in court.

Pamela Hupp is accused in the August 2016 death of Louis Gumpenberger, inside her O’Fallon home. Prosecutors say it was all a plot to frame someone in a separate murder case.

Hupp's trial is set to start September 11 and for now, is on track for that date.

Friday, the judge and attorneys made preparations for what they think will be a three-week long trial.

To avoid a tainted jury pool, all sides have already agreed that the jurors will be picked in Clay County and then sequestered in hotel rooms for the trial, which will take place in St. Charles County.

Hupp appeared in an orange jumpsuit, with her wrists and ankles shackled.

She faces the death penalty if she is convicted.
