Murder for Hire Defendant Freed On Bond in SDNY But Told No Brooklyn or Dark Web

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 16 -- A woman accused of murder for hire was freed on $50,000 bond on March 16 but ordered not to travel to Brooklyn where her targets, and spouse with whom she shared a dog, resides.   Both the defendant and the victim work for a online sports betting company.

According to the US Attorney's Office, the defendant sought out and prepared to pay $6,000 in Bitcoin for the murder of the spouse through a dark web site which offered, for the lower price of $2500, to break bone or cut off a body part.   

Federal Defender Marne Lenox noted to U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Stewart D. Aaron that the government waited a long time before charging her client.   

Judge Aaron took a break, during which Marne Lenox joked to Inner City Press, You're going to write about me. Inner City Press replied, It's a big day here in Mag Court. And it was, what with a rare appearance at the prosecution table by SDNY US Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman, and a confab of Mag Court judges Gorenstein, Cave and Aaron, at least, in the back.  

Judge Aaron returned and ordered the defendant Ms. Schneider released on $50,000 bond; Lenox was ordered to be the one to deal with the shared dog (drawing a joke from another defense lawyer online). Also, no Brooklyn or dark web for the defendant, but not restrictions beyond that. The defendant remains in the Mag court gallery for the next case. And so it goes in the SDNY. The case is US v. Schneider, 20-mj-2777 (Aaron).
