Transcript for Accused Murderer Tries to Convince Judge to Set Her Free on Bond
First a young Kentucky woman accused of brutally killing her boyfriend shooting him six times and boasting she, quote, gave him a nose job he always wanted. She's been in jail for nearly two years awaiting trial and now she's trying to convince a judge to let her go free on bond. ABC's linsey Davis has that story. Reporter: This morning, Shana hubers is behind bars waiting for a judge to decide whether to grant bail to the 22-year-old accused murderer. Hubers has pleaded not guilty and at a bail hearing Monday told the court it was self-defense when she shot her boyfriend Ryan Poston, a 29-year-old lawyer with a passion for justice according to his obituary. Twice in the face and then four more times to, quote, stop the twitching in October 2012. What did you believe would happen if you had grabbed that gun first? I believe that I would have been hurt, that I would have been shot. Reporter: But prosecutors say once arrested, she gave a different reason. That you had said you shot him in the face, you gave him the nose job he'd always wanted. Do you recall -- I've seen that on -- yes, I've seen that. Reporter: In a bombshell statement on the stand she admitted telling a friend that she talked about killing Poston at the same gun rank where she is seen here on her instagram page just days before Poston's death. I want to turn around, shooter and kill him like it was an accident. Reporter: She said it was just a joke. Since her 2012 arrest her bail has gone from 1 million to $5 million before being revoked entirely. Her attorneys say that's unconstitutional. But prosecutors say the former honor student has been brazen about her plans to flee. Allegedly plotting to stage a bus crash getaway inspired by Harrison Ford in "The fugitive." Have you at any time attempted to escape. No. I take it you don't want to be there? Obviously. With regard to bail, the judge is expected to make a decision in the next couple of days. Based on hubers' behavior he said he doesn't think a seven-figure about bail is out of the question. The judge saying he hopes this trial will be over before Christmas.
