His relatives in the front row of the court were also seen sobbing, the Sun Herald reported.
Caliskan had difficulty hearing the details of the case as they were read due to problems with his hearing aids.
Her lawyer asked a nurse on duty to help, saying the battery in his client’s hearing aids was dead and she couldn’t hear what was being said.
The court heard it was the first time Caliskan had been arrested.
She did not apply for bail. Caliskan was taken into custody.
She will face court again in December.
