NEWPORT, Ky. – Attorneys for Shayna Hubers, the woman accused of murdering her boyfriend in October 2012 appeared in a Campbell County courtroom to discuss details of the case Monday.

A judge began hearing arguments for suppression of evidence, the mental health issues, and other motions involving Hubers before noon.

Hubers remained in the Campbell County Detention Center since October 2012 for fatally shooting her boyfriend, Ryan Poston in his Meadow Lane apartment in Highland Heights.

A judge denied her bail in Feb, 2013 based on evidence submitted by Campbell County detectives.

"Eleven days before the murder, a text message to her friend Christy: 'When I go to the shooting range with Ryan tonight I want to turn around, shoot and kill him and play like it's an accident,'" Campbell County Commonwealth’s Attorney Michelle Snodgrass said last year. "Eleven days before the murder."

Hubers’ defense attorney, Jon Paul Ryan countered at the time his client had no prior record, and was not a flight risk.

"I think when you look at things in context, it's going to be obvious things happened very quickly, in a very short period of time without any thought that when into this. It's a tragic event and I think the community and the jury need to hear the whole story," Rion said.

On Monday, detectives in the case were ordered to return to court on March 24 to further discuss the possible suppression of evidence in the case. Other motions, including mental health issues, continued to be discussed Monday afternoon.
