After her trial, she was sent to the Avoyelles Parish Jail. The judge over the trial, Judge Billy Bennett, set a property bond for Rabalais at $100,000.
Rabalais bailed out quickly and was released from the jail around 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, less than a day after she was found guilty.
On top of that, her attorney, Chad Guillot told News Channel 5 he is filing a motion for Rabalais. We don’t know what the motion is yet, but we will keep you updated on that once we have more information.
As of now, her sentencing date is still set for Nov. 12.
Lachney's remains were found in 2016 on T-Doos Road in Mansura. According to the Avoyelles Parish District Attorney's Office, Lachney and Rabalais were hanging out earlier in the day on the last day he was seen. The DA's Office said no specific manner of death has been determined from the autopsy.
