Ten days after a brutal double murder in Winchester the shocking case reached the courtroom Wednesday.  Lillie Stanton, 48, made her initial appearance in Clark District Court on charges of murdering her daughter and granddaughter May 20 inside their home on Vaught Road.
 
Stanton appeared via video link from the jail a half block away.  It took less than a minute for the Judge Brandy Brown to ask Stanton a series of questions and set her bond at $500,000.
 
Stanton allegedly stabbed her daughter, Danel Korrey Stanton, 23, and granddaughter, Kaydence Ray Miers, 22 months, to death.  The toddler’s mother and father were scheduled for a child custody hearing three days later.  Police documents indicate Lillie Stanton confessed to the killings saying she was worried that the father would be given more visitation rights.
 
The toddler’s paternal grandmother, Linda Ross, was in the courtroom to watch the proceedings.  “I just want to make sure that Kaydence and Korrey isn't forgot,” Ross said after the court session.  “I want to fight for justice, I want to make sure justice is served for both of them."
 
Stanton had a preliminary hearing scheduled for June 13.
