FIRST ON WITN: Stepmom Accused Of Tying Son To Tree Out Of Jail

An Edgecombe County woman, charged with murder after her 13-year-old stepson died after being tied to a tree, is out of jail.

WITN News has learned that Sandra McMillan posted the required $200,000 bond this morning and was released from jail.

Sandra McMillan pleaded not guilty in Edgecombe County Superior Court in January to child abuse and murder. It was during that hearing that Judge Milton Fitch set the woman's bond.

The judge ruled if she posted bail, she must live with her cousin in Cary and wear a monitoring device. She will be allowed to travel only to her attorney's office.

McMillan and her husband, Brice, are accused of tying up Tyler McMillan overnight for being disobedient last June 10th. Tyler also was tied to the tree the next night, and Sandra McMillan found him unresponsive the following afternoon.

She and her husband were indicted last month. Brice McMillan waived arraignment and has pleaded not guilty to the same charges.
