Superior Court Judge Anthony Mellaci Jr. on Tuesday continued bail for Kathleen Dorsett at $1.5 million. She remains in the Monmouth County Jail. Dorsett's attorney, Barry Slott, told the judge he had advised his client of her rights.
The 36-year-old Dorsett and Stephen Moore were married in 2007. They divorced in June.
Authorities say Moore was last seen dropping off the couple's 20-month-old daughter at Dorsett's Ocean Township home on Aug. 16.
Moore's body was found Aug. 18 in his mother's burned car in Long Branch.
Prosecutors believe other people were involved in his slaying.
