A woman who is accused of getting her husband to kill her former lover in Melbourne, with both men ending up dead, has been released on bail.
Biannca Edmunds, 34 is charged with the murder and was granted bail on Tuesday.
She’s accused of having her husband Glen Cassidy, 49, kill her former partner, 32-year-old Michael Caposiena in suburban Westmeadows.
The two men died in an altercation.

Her lack of any prior criminal history, the delay, pandemic and family circumstances were among the reasons Supreme Court Justice Paul Coghlan granted bail.
Edmunds’ father, who is caring for her children, ‘impressed’ Justice Coghlan with his evidence.
‘I’m satisfied that is not been demonstrated [Edmunds] is a risk of flight or a danger to the welfare of the public,’ Justice Coghlan said.
The mother and alleged murderer will be able to return to the ACT where she was living at the time of her arrest.
She must not contact witnesses, has to follow a curfew and must return to Melbourne in June for a court hearing.
