This is the sickening moment a woman accused of butchering 3-year-old Julian Wood in an Ohio grocery store parking lot smirked, smiled and giggled her way through a court appearance as the horrifying charges were read against her.

Bionca Ellis, 32, displayed the disgusting behavior a week after she allegedly stabbed the child to death and also wounded his 38-year-old mother Margot Wood outside a Giant Eagle in North Olmsted — outside Cleveland.

Authorities have said the attack was a “random act of violence.”

Ellis is facing ten criminal counts, including two counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder. The judge indicated Monday that she could potentially face the death penalty if she is convicted.

While appearing in court with her hands cuffed behind her back, Ellis appeared to fight back a smirk before she smiled several times as the charges were being read, footage from WEWS shows.

Ellis also whispered while answering questions in court and hung her head while she was initially being arraigned over video conference.

Ellis then giggled and replied “si” when Judge Nancy Russo asked her if she was going to plead not guilty to the charges against her, News 5 Cleveland reported. She eventually said “yes “when the furstrated judge pressed her.
