FRANKFORT, Ky. - A Kentucky woman in jail awaiting trial on charges she shot her neighbor's trailer and hitting an elderly woman's head has been granted a 24-hour furlough to spend Christmas with her three children.
Franklin Circuit Judge Thomas Wingate ordered jailers to release 38-year-old Mona Lisa Maupin from 8 p.m. Monday until 8 p.m. Tuesday with the provision that she wears an ankle monitor.
Maupin has been in custody since Sept. 6 for criminal attempt to commit murder, first-degree assault, four counts of first-degree wanton endangerment and two counts of tampering with physical evidence. The woman struck in the shooting survived.
The State Journal reported that Maupin's attorney, William Johnson asked Wingate to either lower her bond or grant her the holiday furlough. Prosecutors opposed lowering the $100,000 bond.
