A New Carlisle mother who is out on bond, Thursday had that bond reduced by 50 percent.
Jacqueline Wilk has already gone through one trial on neglect charges, related to the June 2011 deaths of her two young sons.
Both died, after locking themselves in the trunk of the family car on a hot summer day. Wilk's first trial ended with a hung jury. Wilk's second trial is scheduled for next month.
“Jackie has no money for her defense has been paid by family members who are having a great deal of difficulty frankly in raising money for a second trial these things are not inexpensive, by doing this the judge permits, has eased the burden on them considerably for which they are very grateful,” says Charles Lahey Wilk’s attorney.
Wilk's $10,000 bond was reduced to $5,000. The judge noted that Wilk had not missed a single court date to this point, and posed little risk of flight.
