Background and the latest updates

Regular visits between Edgar Steele and his wife, Cyndi Steele, will continue at the Ada County Jail in Boise, a federal judge ruled.

The Steeles have been allowed to meet once a week at the Spokane County Jail in visits that are monitored by Edgar Steele’s lawyers. The couple are prohibited from talking about the case, and audio recordings are required to be sent to a federal magistrate for review.

Lawyers must end the meeting if the Steeles try to discuss the murder-for-hire case.

U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill approved the meetings last October at the request of Cyndi Steele, who believes her husband is innocent. Winmill recently granted a request for the meetings to continue in Boise, where Steele has been moved.

Edgar Steele , 65, has pleaded not guilty to hiring Larry Fairfax to kill his wife and claims he’s a victim of a government conspiracy.

Steele’s trial is to begin April 26 in Boise.
