NASSAU, BAHAMAS (WDHN)— A former Dothan pageant queen in the middle of an alleged murder-for-hire plot targeting her husband, a former Auburn Tigers football player, was released from Fox Hill Prison on Wednesday, according to ABC.
ABC is reporting that on Friday, Lindsay Shiver posted her $100,000 bail but failed to provide the court with an address in Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas on the island of New Providence, and her attorney did not follow the protocol set out by the judge.
Last Wednesday, the New York Post reported that prosecutors in the Bahamas initially objected to bond for Lindsay Shiver but withdrew the objection after speaking with Robert Shiver, the intended target of the plot.
Shiver’s alleged accomplices, her lover, 28-year-old barman Terrence Bethel and the would-be hitman, Faron Newbold Jr., were booked and released on a $20,000 bond each.
All three were fitted with ankle monitors and must remain in the Bahamas until October 5, their next scheduled court appearance. Shiver will also have a daily curfew of 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and must sign in at the Central Police Station in Nassau on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
According to ABC, Shiver had sent photos of Robert Shiver, to Newbold Jr., along with the message “Kill him.” Authorities claimed that Shiver later admitted in an interrogation with law enforcement that she sent those text messages.
Bahamas Court News states law enforcement discovered the murder plot while investigating a break-in at Grabber’s Bar and Grill on Guana. They claim officers came across the messages on WhatsApp while searching the phone of one of the break-in suspects.
Shiver, whose maiden name is Shirly, was named Miss Houston County in 2005, according to Houston County Pagent Inc. She also placed second in the National Peanut Festival pageant.
If convicted, Shiver, Bethel, and Newbold Jr. could face between 30 and 60 years behind bars.
