MERRILL, WI (WTAQ) - It appears that a Merrill woman convicted of killing two friends in a drunk driving crash will be free on bond for about two-and-a-half months.
Ashley Baumann was released from jail Thursday, after a judge agreed to stop keeping her in jail without bond until her sentencing on August 20th.
The 26-year-old Baumann posted $10,000 of a $50,000 bond, and she was released on special conditions.
A jury convicted Baumann last month on all seven criminal charges she was facing. She caused a high-speed crash in Merrill in 2012 that killed her friends Misty Glisch and Jessica Hartwig.
Officials are conducting a pre-sentence investigation, which prosecutors will use to help make their recommendation of how long Baumann should be in prison.
