The widow of a Jefferson Parish deputy remains charged with second-degree murder in his death but a judge opted yesterday to lower her bond.

Shantel Wagner maintains that Deputy Troy Smith died after shooting himself in the head, but authorities continue to believe she shot and killed him in the couple's Waggaman home last month.

The judge says there's probable cause to keep her in custody, but reduced her bond to $300,000.
