Judge lowers bond of Osceola County man accused of killing daughter-in-law

The Osceola County man accused of killing his daughter-in-law and burying her in his front yard had his bond reduced by a judge, making it easier for him now to be released from jail.

Angel Rivera and his son, Christopher Otero-Rivera are accused, but have not yet been formally charged in the slaying of Otero-Rivera’s estranged wife, Nicole Montalvo.

Rivera, who has been in jail since October, was previously sitting on a $350,000 bond for not reporting a death and abuse of a dead body until a judge lowered his bond.

Channel 9 broke the news that the state did not have enough evidence to charge them for her death. The two are currently jailed on other charges. The state has hoped that Sheriff’s Office would have been able to file murder charges by now, but that has yet to happen.
