Does anyone know if she can actually face the death penalty for this if proven guilty? I did a little research and it looks like the worst age can get is life in prison

Depends on what she is charged with... there are different degrees of murder/manslaughter. Depends on if jury finds it was in self defense or premeditated. She can be convicted on a lower manslaughter charged and serve 15-25 years or 1st degree murder for 25 to life. Time will tell...we are only in the shallow end of this trial and it WILL go on for good year or more before anything happens.

She was scheduled to appear in court at 8:30 this morning. Anyone heard anything? I'm hoping the news websites will update.

No news report yet, they said they are rescheduling for early this afternoon. The judge is apparently going to give a press report explaining her reasoning behind the bail drop from $2 mil to $1 mil and then up to $5 mil

I would speculate the reasoning of the increase in bail is bc of her age and the lack of the publics knowledge over the crime. I'm betting the judge simply wants to protect her from herself or from harm from others.. If I were shayna I think I wouldn't want to make bail, at least until some more info pertaining to the possibility of self defense arises. Anyways, We will see what the judge says her reasoning is today

Shayna Hubers, 21, had a bond hearing in Campbell County Court Friday morning. A full bond hearing is set for Friday afternoon at 3:30 p.m.

I'm going to speculate that the increase in bail is because of evidence review. She's 21, so her age wouldn't figure into anything, and the Court isn't concerned with what the public does or does not know.

I have very limited knowledge of the court system but i have, as many of you seen things like this on the news before. With that said I do not see her serving life or a being sentenced to death. My guess is a first degree murder charge and her serving 20-25 years. Knowing shayna personally I don't see her holding up too well in prison tho, not that any one holds up well though.

Hubers appeared in front of Judge Karen Thomas and Hubers' attorney, Wil Zeverly, asked to have her bond amount lowered from $5 million on the argument that the bond amount was too high and Hubers' family couldn't afford it. Judge Thomas denied the request, calling Hubers a danger to the community.

Hubers' bond amount was increased to $5 million early Wednesday morning -- a move that came after a visiting judge lowered her bond from $2 million to $1 million during a court hearing Tuesday. The judge who reduced the bond was visiting judge David Hayse from Lexington, Ky.

Zeverly also requested that Hubers be put on home electronic monitoring instead of being held in jail, but was also denied by Judge Thomas, citing that Hubers could be a flight risk, or a risk to run from the area.

I read that a visiting judge dropped her bond from two to one million cash and that the original judge returned and was furious so he upped it to 5 mil. Not sure that was just one story circulating as an explanation for the increase.

Thanks. Sorry, I responded below before reading this explanation.

She's certainly a flight risk and I'm sure there is a factor of protecting the accused in such a wild case.

Judge Thomas not only deemed her a flight risk, but also a danger to the community.

Here is what I think will come out. Once again we won't know until trial. Apparently shayna was waiting at Ryan's condo bc she still had a key. Not only did she shoot him in the face but to put him 'out of his misery' she shot him again to end his life. Not only did she wait 15 Mins to call police but she allegedly was wearing his blood soaked clothes with his handgun in her hands while the police came in singing a lullabye! Why doesn't she plead insanity??

Where did you hear about her wearing his clothes and singing a lullabye when the police arrived?

The meeting was canceled after a bond agreement was reached.

The full bond hearing was called off. There was an agreed entry approved by Judge Thomas in lieu of the hearing. This agreed entry kept the bond at $5mill CASH; neither 10% down nor property is allowed. If her parents can somehow meet bond, she will be released subject to a ton of stipulations (GPS tracker, etc, etc). The entry is sealed so I don't know the specific stipulations outside of GPS, but from what I was told they are very stringent.

For what it's worth I am only 23, so whomever gave title to this forum can suck it.
