Bail for Katherine Schubert, the Brick woman accused of beating her grandmother to death in the home they shared in the Lion's Head North development, had her bail continued at $750,000 cash during a court hearing on Monday, court officials confirmed.

According to a report in the Asbury Park Press, Schubert dabbed her eyes with a tissue and squeezed her eyes shut as Judge Wendel E. Daniels read the murder charge.

Schubert is being represented by Dawn Nee, a public defender. Chief Trial Attorney Laura Pierro is handling the state's case, said Al Della Fave, spokesman for the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office.

Schubert is being held in the Ocean County Jail on charges of murder after her 94-year-old grandmother, Mary Francis Driscol, was found slumped in her bed after being assaulted in her home in the Lion's Head North senior community in Brick. Driscol later succumbed to complications from head injuries, an autopsy showed.

Driscol was found in the home by her daughter – who is also the suspect's mother – and a friend after relatives did not hear from her for two days. Schubert, who was reportedly living in her grandmother's home, was described as being "highly intoxicated" when the pair arrived and called police.
