Bond granted in murder-for-hire case


ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Nearly two months after murder charges were dropped against an Albany Marine in the death of his wife, the woman accused of hiring a hit man to kill him has been released from jail.

An Ohio judge Tuesday granted 53-year-old Irene Wlaszyn a $25,000 dollar personal bond.

She was arrested last month on charges of hiring someone to kill Sgt. James Eppler who was married to her late niece, Natalie.

He was released from the Dougherty County Jail in late May after forensic evidence showed Natalie Eppler died from a self inflicted gunshot wound at their Gordon Avenue home in February.

Wlaszyn,who suffers from numerous medical conditions, is not allowed to have contact with Eppler.

The Judge ruled that due to underlying health issues and strong ties to the community, Wlaszyn, who was indicted in June, is not considered a flight risk.
