TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Toni Mayfield has been in jail for a week now after police found her husband dead and found Mayfield covered in blood, with several cuts over her left eye.
She was released because no one opposed it in court today, the defense asked for it, there was no one in the courtroom opposed to it and the state said they neither supported it, nor would they fight her release. The state would be comfortable with whatever decision the judge made.
For that reason, the judge released her to pretrial services at 4 p.m. Friday afternoon.
Her son, who was in the courtroom, says she can stay at his home with his wife and 8-year-old son, but there are conditions to her release, such as no contact with her mother in law.
According to police reports, Mayfield called 911 last week to say she'd killed her husband. When police arrived, they found her soaked in blood,blood in several rooms in the house and her husband dead in the bedroom of their far northwest side home. He was in a pool of blood and with a gun in his hand.
Mayfield will be back in court next week to determine whether she will be charged in the case.
