A judge Thursday set $75,000 bond for Colethia Williams, the woman charged with murder in the deaths of three of her children.

A hearing wrapped up Thursday morning at the Bibb County jail.

Bibb County Judge Tillman Self set bond for Williams with some conditions.

If she's released on bond, Williams will not have any unsupervised visits with her surviving son, J'Lon.

She can have supervised visits with the child at his grandmother's house, but no more than two hours at a time, three times a week.

And Williams' attorney will give prosecutors a schedule of those visits.

Williams faces three murder charges in a fire that killed her three other children.

Police say Williams was apparently not home when the fire broke out around 1:30 a.m., on Sunday, Feb. 24.

Williams also faces four counts of child cruelty in the second degree and one count of felony false statements.

Thursday, her lawyer, Reza Sedghi, said Williams left the house to visit her boyfriend, about a block away, but was out of the house for no more than a half hour.

After today's hearing, she returned to the Bibb County jail. 

Austin Lewis is at that hearing and will give a full report on Eyewitness News at 5 and 6 p.m.
