A 49-year-old Altus man who was being held without bond for the 2001 murder of his wife had a bond set Tuesday, on the condition that if posted, he live with his mother.

Garland Allen is accused of killing and burying his wife in 2001. He was arrested in December after police reopened the cold case with the help of the "Cold Justice" TV series.

Authorities say he led them to his wife's body after his arrest.

His bond was set at $250,000 with that stipulation about living with his mother in Lone Wolf and he is not allowed to contact any witnesses in the case with the exception of his mother and children.

Also, if he posts bond he must hire his own attorney. His preliminary hearing was set for March 31st.
