Wife of Accused Portland Shooter Gets $150,000 Bond

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND (Kiii News) - Laura Strickland, the 23-year old wife of the man accused in the 2012 double-shooting of Mollie Olgin and Kristene Chapa, appeared in court this morning for a bond reduction hearing.

Strickland's bond was set at $150,000 and she must wear a GPS monitor and live with her parents in Ingleside. She faces a charge of tampering with evidence in the Portland shooting case.

The couple was initially denied bail. Laura and her husband, David Strickland, were arrested June 20 in Helotes, Texas, after a break in the case earlier this month led investigators to believe that David Strickland was the man who shot and killed Olgin, and severely wounded Chapa, back on June 22, 2012, at Violet Andrews Park in Portland.

If bond is posted, Laura Strickland will not be allowed to have any contact with the victims' family, and will have to be wearing a GPS monitor before she is allowed to leave the jail.

Kiii News Reporter Anayeli Ruiz was at Monday's bond reduction hearing and came back with the details.
