Bond has been reduced for Michele Marie Williams, the North Texas mother who told police an intruder killed her husband Greg only to later change her story and say he committed suicide.

Williams, 42, was arrested near her home on Monday afternoon in Flower Mound, where she now resides.  She was charged with murder on Tuesday, nearly three months after her husband's death, and held on $522,000 bond.

On Friday, a Tarrant County judge reduced her bond to $85,000, meaning Williams will only have to post $8,500 to go free.

Since her arrest, Williams has been held in the Keller City Jail.  She is now being held in the Tarrant County Jail.  Her attorney said they plan to post bond this weekend.
