American woman charged with conspiring to kill husband in the Bahamas still in jail after $100,000 bail granted, lawyer says

Shiver, 36, of Thomasville, Georgia, is accused of unsuccessfully conspiring with the two Bahamas natives to kill her husband, Robert Shiver, on July 16 while on the Abaco Islands, months after the couple filed for divorce.

The bail conditions stipulate that she remain in the Bahamas and wear an ankle monitoring device until her next court appearance on October 5, Cargill said.

Lindsay Shiver and the two suspected co-conspirators have been in custody at the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services since their arrest last week.

Her alleged accomplices, Bethel, 28, and Newbold Jr., 29, face conspiracy to commit murder charges.

Attorneys represented the defendants in court during a Friday arraignment, according to court documents. They were not required to enter pleas and were remanded to the Bahamas corrections department until an October 5 hearing.

Lindsay and Robert Shiver both attended Auburn University and live in Thomasville, according to social media posts. Robert Shiver is an insurance executive and former Auburn University football player, court records and his company’s website show.

The husband filed for divorce a day before the wife did

Robert Shiver had filed for divorce April 5, and his wife did the same the next day, according to a complaint at the Thomas County, Georgia, Clerk of Courts website.

The family has spent a good deal of time in the Bahamas, pictures posted on a social media account believed to belong to Lindsay Shiver indicate.

Robert Shiver briefly was a member of at least one NFL team, according to his company’s website. Court documents in the Bahamas misidentify him as Richard Shiver.
