Murder Suspect Released On Bond

An Oregon woman accused of taking part in the death of her husband 36 years ago is headed home.

Vickie Babbitt posted bond at the Onslow County jail shortly after 4:00 p.m. Tuesday.

She's accused of conspiring with George Hayden to kill her husband at the time, William Miller.

A judge set a $400,000 bond for the 58-year-old woman on Monday. Her attorney, Scott Jack, said she plans to get a flight back to Oregon Wednesday. There, she will be placed on electronic monitoring.

Previous Story

An Oregon woman, accused in a 1972 murder conspiracy, will be able to get out of jail on bond.

Vickie Babbitt was arrested September 11th in connection with the death of her husband, William Miller.

Onslow County authorities say Babbitt conspired with George Hayden to kill Miller, a Camp Lejeune Marine. Hayden, a former police chief in Belhaven and Cape Carteret, later married Babbitt.

A judge says Babbitt can return home to Oregon after she posts a $400,000 secured bond. She must also surrender her passport, wear a GPS ankle bracelet and check in with Onslow County authorities on a weekly basis.

Hayden was released from jail last month on bond as well.
