Judge OKs Weekly Meeting For Steeles

The wife of a North Idaho lawyer accused of hiring someone to kill her will be allowed to meet with her husband every week. Cyndi and Edgar Steele can meet once a week at the Spokane County Jail or over the phone, according to a ruling issued Monday by U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill. Edgar Steele’s lawyer, Roger Peven, must be present, and the visits must be recorded. Peven is required to end the meeting if the Steeles try to discuss the murder-for-hire case, and the couple are prohibited from exchanging notes or documents. Magistrate Candy Dale will review the jail recordings on a regular basis/Meghann Cuniff, Sirens & Gavels. More here.

Question: Would you want to meet weekly with your mate, if the feds and an alleged co-conspirator believe that your spouse tried to kill you?
