Lindsay Shiver was allowed to leave the Bahamas early to spend the holidays with her family in Alabama, thanks to a judge’s decision.

Holiday Travel Permitted For Beauty Queen Accused In Her Ex-NFL Husband's Bahama/s Murder Conspiracy

In the Bahamas, where she allegedly tried to hire a hitman to kill her husband, Robert Shiver, during a tumultuous divorce, Shiver is free on bail but is not permitted to leave the country.

Robert pleaded at the hearing that he is “thankful to be alive” following the alleged murder plot, but the Bahamian judge decided on Thursday that the former beauty queen might return to the United States under certain circumstances.

Lindsay’s attorney contended that his client is a “single housewife with no source of income” who subsists on funds her parents have hidden away, according to Court TV.

Lindsay’s request to leave the Bahamas was granted by the presiding judge, but she is prohibited from travelling to Georgia, where Robert now resides in the home that they once shared, and she must wear her ankle monitor at all times.

She cannot get in touch with Robert; the only exceptions are when she needs to appear at custody and divorce proceedings. It has been reported that she intends to remain in Alabama with her family.

“Lindsay is thankful the court has agreed to let her return to the U.S. so she can see her children,” her lawyer, Owen Wells, told Court TV in a statement. “Her attorneys will continue to prepare for trial and we look forward to vigorously defending Lindsay because she is innocent.”

In July, she, Terrance Bethel, her lover, and Faron Newbold Jr., the suspected hitman, were taken into custody in the Bahamas. For all counts, they entered a not-guilty plea. The trial for Lindsay is expected to begin in March.

The purported murder-for-hire scheme was the culmination of months of mudslinging following the breakdown of Robert and Lindsay’s seemingly flawless 13-year marriage.

In their divorce papers, the 2005 Miss Houston County and the former Auburn football player, who briefly entered the professional ranks, levelled harsh charges at one another.

Lindsay responded to Robert’s claims that she was having an affair by accusing him of “physical and mental cruel treatment,” which included domestic abuse.

Both of them want sole possession of their $2.5 million Georgia house as well as primary care of their children.

In a previously released bodycam video from Fox News Digital, Lindsay dialled 911 on July 16 in response to Robert’s denial of her request to board their private plane to see her partner in the Bahamas.

She is accused of writing “Kill him” in a WhatsApp message to Newbold that same day.

She was detained in the Bahamas five days later for plotting Robert’s murder alongside Bethel and Newbold Jr.

Robert appeared in court via Zoom on Thursday and told the judge he was “thankful to be alive,” according to Court TV.

“After reading the indictment, I understood that this was almost certain to happen. I’m worried about my safety,” he remarked.

Robert objected, but the judge decided in favour of Lindsay, allowing the 36-year-old to travel outside of the Bahamas for the first time since her incarceration in July.
