NEWTON, Iowa — Attorneys for a woman accused in a 1983 double murder in Jasper County were able to get her bond reduced at a hearing Tuesday.
Fifty-four-year-old Theresa Supino is charged with two counts of first degree murder in the deaths of her estranged husband, 20-year-old Steven Fisher, and his new girlfriend 17-year-old Melisa Gregory.
The badly beaten bodies of Fisher and Gregory were found at the Copper Dollar Ranch in rural Jasper County.
Supino was charged with the murders in March.
At the pre-trial hearing a judge declined to rule on a change of venue motion because the proper documentation wasn’t included by the defense. The judge did reduce Supino’s bond from $400,000 to $300,000.
The defense also requested access to more interview footage from the TV show “Cold Justice” that filmed an episode on the case.
Because of the amount of evidence that will need to be reviewed in the case, the earliest a trial date could be set is January of 2015.
