A Lexington woman accused of shooting her boyfriend to death last weekend is facing a higher bond Wednesday morning. Shayna Hubers, 21, is charged with murder in the death of 29-year-old Ryan Poston.
Hubers appeared in court Tuesday morning via video.
The Commonwealth Attorney argued that Hubers' bond remain at the pre-arraignment amount of $2 million. The visiting judge decided to reduce bond to $1 million, despite instructions from the presiding judge not to reduce the bond. When the presiding judge returned, he reportedly increased the bond to $5 million.
Hubers' defense lawyer refused comment and would only say, "The only thing Shayna is guilty of is bad taste in men." This statement comes despite the fact that Hubers was arrested at the scene of the crime on Friday night.
Police were called to an apartment on Meadow Lane in Highland Heights at about 9 p.m. on Friday for a report of a person shot. They found Poston dead of multiple gunshot wounds.
On Wednesday morning, Poston's family released a new statement. "Please keep in mind that the real victim in this tragedy is Ryan Poston, not the woman who shot him multiple times. Anyone who ever knew Ryan knows her claims of self-defense are absurd. We look forward to the day when the truth comes out in a court of law, not from the mouth of a criminal defense lawyer trying his case in the media."
