EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. — A woman who is facing accessory charges in connection to the murders of three people in Custer County last November is out of jail.

The Custer County Sheriff's Office says 51-year-old Nancy Rae Medina-Kochis posted a $100,000 cash-only bond over the weekend. She was released from the El Paso County Jail where she was being held.

Medina-Kochis was arrested in New Mexico along with Hanme Clark, the man accused of killing the three victims over a property dispute. Clark is facing murder charges, and he is being held at the Pueblo County Jail on a $2 million bond.
