BAKERSFIELD, CA -- According to her attorney, Kern County Sherifff's deputies took more DNA from Leslie Chance, the woman deputies say killed her husband.
Kyle Humphrey said detectives requested a meeting with his client Tuesday. He said Leslie Chance met with deputies at his office to take samples of her DNA as well as her fingerprints. Chance's husband, Todd Chance was found dead Sunday, August 25, 2013 in an almond orchard with multiple gunshot wounds.
Leslie Chance was arrested last month for the murder of her husband. But last week deputies released Leslie Chance when the D.A. decided to wait on charges.
Humphrey says detectives took samples from Chance when she was booked and doesn't know why detectives wanted more Wednesday. He said there was concern that Leslie Chance may be re-arrested.
"I was assured she wouldn't be arrested," said Humphrey. "They kept their word and I hope if they ever do decide to arrest again they'll notify us and we can cooperate. It is nerve-racking. It's like seeing a red light in the window but take that a thousand times higher for a woman that was arrested for the murder of her husband."
Humphrey said his office isn't having not having any trouble finding people who support Leslie Chance. The Kern County District Attorney's Office could not be reached for comment on the case.
