Schneider and her husband, Dr. Stephen Schneider, are awaiting trial on charges of directly causing four deaths and contributing to 21 others.
Byers claims Linda Schneider suffered from an infection on her neck and was told to tie back her hair while it healed. But guards found the hair-tie and put her in solitary confinement for having contraband.
Her attorneys have sought to have her released pending trial but judges are concerned she is a flight risk.
