SANTA ANA (CBSLA) — Bail was reduced Friday for Wynne Lee, who has been charged in the deadly shooting of 6-year-old Aiden Leos.

If she posts bail, Lee will be required to surrender her passport, she will not be allowed to drive, leave the state without permission or have any contact with her boyfriend and co-defendant, Marcus Anthony Eriz. Lee will also be required to be under GPS monitoring.
In agreeing to reduce bail, Orange County Superior Court Judge Larry Yellin noted that Lee is not personally accused of committing any type of violent act and has no criminal history. However, he noted that even after the fatal shooting, she allowed Eriz to continue riding in her car with a gun, which he allegedly brandished at another motorist days after Aiden’s death.
Yellin called her actions “absolutely concerning.”READ MORE: CBS2 Investigates: E. Coli Bacteria Levels In Echo Park Lake Higher Than State Water Quality Standards
“Allowing that gun and that person back in her car and committing what appears to be another crime … that is concerning when I consider the danger to the public and to the victim,” Yellin said.
Lee’s attorney had asked bail to be set at $50,000.
Lee and Eriz, who were arrested on June 6 after an extensive manhunt that included a $500,000 reward for their capture, have been charged in connection with last month’s road rage shooting that killed Aiden as he was strapped into his booster seat in the backseat of his mother’s car. Both have pleaded not guilty. Prosecutors say Eriz was sitting in the passenger seat when he fired at Aiden’s mother’s car.
