PERSON COUNTY, N.C. — Trooper Bobby Lee Regan was released Thursday from the Person County Jail.

Regan, who is charged in the attempted murder of his wife, Daneille, last month, was released on a $1 million property bond.

On Wednesday, a Superior Court judge refused prosecutors' request to raise Regan's bond from $1 million to $10 million. Prosecutors argued Regan is a threat to co-defendant Linda Lee, who will testify she saw Regan shoot his wife.

Regan's paid suspension with the Highway Patrol has been extended another 30 days, pending its own internal investigation.
