Fox News Latino reports that Shellie transferred $74,000 (broken into eight smaller transfers ranging from $7,500 to $9,900) from George's credit union account to hers.

Court records show that $47,000 was transferred from her husband's account to his sister's in the days before his bond hearing.

According to Fox News Latino, during the bail hearing, Shellie testified saying the couple had limited funds for bail because she was a full-time student and he wasn't working. But prosecutors said they actually had then already raised $135,000 in donations from the website.

Shellie was asked about the donation website during the hearing and she said she didn't know how much they had raised. George's bail was set at $150,000, but once they discovered Shellie's statements were false, the judge revoked his bail and had him released on a $1 million bond.
