Fox 10 News reporter Christina Leavenworth and I were in Circuit Court Judge Frank Bell’s courtroom in Pensacola Monday, sitting right in front of suspect Pamela Long-Wiggins as we waited for her hearing to begin.  She is charged with being an accessory after the fact in the murder of Byrd and Melanie Billings.

Wiggins, who moved ahead of me at the defense table,  maintained her neutral to pleasant expression as the state asked for her bond to be increased to $500,000.  The only change in her demeanor came when a woman who identified herself as Long-Wiggins’ best friend testified for the state.  As the woman tearfully explained that Pamela had asked her to take care of Pamela’s child because Pamela was afraid she would be going to prison, Pamela’s face turned red.

There are still plenty of twists and turns to come in this case, many found in the hundreds of documents released after Wiggins’ bond hearing.  Fox 10 News will be there to cover them all.
