Bond Reduced For Internet Romance Suspect

A judge has reduced the bond for an Australian woman charged with raveling to North Carolina in search of a teenage boy she met on the Internet.

Bond was cut from two million dollars to 850-thousand dollars for 31-year-old Tamara Broome during a 15-minute hearing in Pitt County District Court yesterday. Her lawyer says she hasn't posted bond yet.

Broome was charged with felony abduction of children and has another court hearing July 25th.

The sheriff's office says Broome formed an online relationship with the boy who was 16 at the time by playing an online game called the World of Warcraft.

The relationship came to light when the boy's parents reported him missing last month. He was found at Raleigh-Durham International Airport trying to get a flight to Australia.
