Updated:

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - A woman accused of helping her boyfriend murder a witness before he could testify wants to be let out of jail until her trial.

Sherria Gordon is accused of lying to authorities about the murder of 19-year-old Alex Zaldivar.

Her boyfriend, Bessman Okafor, is charged with first-degree murder.

Investigators believe Okafor killed Zaldivar in September because the teen was going to testify against him in a home invasion case.

Gordon's attorneys requested a bond hearing.
