ALBEMARLE, N.C. -- Authorities said 76-year-old Betty Neumar posted bond Thursday at the Stanly County jail, where she was being held on a $300,000 bond.
Neumar is charged in the 1986 death of her fourth husband, Harold Gentry. Authorities have said she tried to hire three people to kill Gentry in the weeks before his bullet-riddled body was found in his rural North Carolina home. She was arrested in May.
Authorities in Florida and Ohio are investigating Neumar in the deaths of her third husband and her only son, and investigators also are re-examining the death of her first husband. She hasn't been charged in any of those cases.
