ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  An Albany native admitted to investigators her close relationship with the suspected ringleader of a group charged with killing a prominent Florida couple.

Pamela Long Wiggins remains in jail charged as an accessory in the home invasion shootings of Byrd and Melanie Billings.

This week her bond was increased from ten thousand to five hundred thousand dollars.

The Escambia County Sheriff's Office released transcripts of their initial interview with Wiggins.

They questioned her about guns in her home and her friendship with Patrick Gonzalez and his father.

Wiggins said she allowed Gonzalez to come and go from her home but said she had a hard time remembering the day of the murders and Gonzalez borrowing her van.

A safe stolen from the Billings home was later found hidden in Wiggins backyard.
