SINTON, Texas — A judge has set bond at $150,000 on an evidence tampering charge against the wife of a man accused in a South Texas park attack two years ago that left a woman dead and her girlfriend hurt.

District Court Judge Starr Bauer also ordered Monday that Laura Strickland wear an electronic monitor and live with her parents. Strickland's husband, David, is facing numerous charges, including capital murder, for the 2012 attack in Portland, near Corpus Christi.

The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports ( ) Portland police believe Laura Strickland wrote a letter and left it at a Sinton home earlier this month detailing the assaults and shootings that left 19-year-old Mollie Olgin dead and her 18-year-old girlfriend wounded.

Arrest affidavits indicate the letter was written from the perspective of a hit man.
