Bond reduced for woman accused of shooting her boyfriend to death

CAMPBELL COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) -Shayna Hubers appeared in court through video arraignment today.

This was Hubers first court appearance since being booked for murder.

Hubers was sent to jail with a $2 million dollar bond.

Hubers defense attorney asked the judge to reduce her bond to $100,000 with electronic monitoring because she is considered low-risk and has no criminal record.

A Campbell County judge did reduce Hubers bond to $1 million dollars today.

Twenty-nine-year-old, Ryan Poston was found dead inside of an apartment on Friday by police. Authorities are not yet releasing a motive in his murder.

Poston's family issued this statement about his murder:

"Ryan's family is devastated by this loss. Ryan was as bright as he was kind and as principled as he was caring. His passing is an unspeakable hardship to so many people. We ask that all of Ryan's family and friends as well as our community to keep Ryan and those who loved him in their thoughts and prayers. We want to make it clear that Ryan was trying to end this relationship; he was trying to move on with his life. Tragically, his life was taken from him. Justice must now be served."

Huber's attorney states,"The only thing Shayna is guilty of is bad taste in men."

Huber's is a Lexington native and a graduate of Dunbar High School.
