EFFINGHAM COUNTY, GA (WTOC) - An Effingham County Superior Court judge has granted a $15,000 bond for Robin Heidt, the widow of murder victim Carey Heidt.

Robin Heidt was arrested February 2 on charges that she threatened a witness in the murder case of her husband and father-in-law Phillip Heidt.

See Deputies: Heidt widow arrested for threatening witness.

Carey, Phillip and his wife Linda Heidt, were shot in their home on Springfield-Egypt Road in August of 2008.

Linda survived the shooting but Carey and Phillip were killed.

Phillip and Linda's other son Craig Heidt, was arrested in May 2009 for the murders and the shooting of his mother.

Little information is known surrounded the exact circumstances of Robin Heidt's arrest, but authorities say she threatened a witness in the case.

At her bond hearing Thursday, the Superior Court judge said in addition to the $15,000 bond, Robin must leave Effingham County and move to her hometown of Charleston within 72 hours of her release.

The judge said she must stay in Charleston until the murder trial of Craig Heidt is finished and can only come back to Effingham County to meet with attorneys regarding her case or Craig Heidt's case.

She is also to have no contact with any witnesses or potential witnesses in the murder case.

A gag order on the Craig Heidt case was issued January 22. A trial date for the Heidt murders has not yet been set.
