WELD COUNTY, Colo. -- A Weld County judge signed an order changing Tom Fallis' bond Friday from $200,000 to a no-bond hold.
The change means Fallis will have to appear before a judge before bond is set to have mandatory orders issued which can include provisions involving his children and any guns he owns.
Fallis was arrested in Bloomington, Indiana. He has been charged in the shooting death of his wife Ashley Fallis early on New Year's Day in 2012 in their Evans home. Her death was originally ruled a suicide.
The decision came after a FOX31 Denver report Friday night which raised questions about whether the initial $200,000 bond was mistakenly set in violation of Colorado laws involving domestic violence.
That law required defendants accused in domestic violence cases to appear before a judge before they bond out. As the bond was set, Fallis would have been freed upon posting the bond.
Fallis is scheduled to be extradited back to Colorado within the next ten days to appear in court.
In April of this year, after an extensive two-year investigation, FOX31 Denver reporter Justin Joseph presented new evidence to Evans Police Chief Rick Brandt, prompting him to reopen the death investigation and turn it over to an independent police agency.
A song has been written and performed as a tribute to Ashley Fallis and the legal battle her family is fighting. See the YouTube video with Ashley's story and hear the song.
The song is available for purchase for $0.99 on iTunes. The proceeds go to Ashley's family.AlertMe
