Ohio Native With 5 Dead Spouses Leaves Jail

ALBEMARLE, N.C. (AP) - A southern Ohio native charged in the death of one of her five dead husbands has posted bond and is out of a North Carolina jail.

Seventy-six-year-old Betty Neumar was born in Ironton. She's charged in the 1986 death of her fourth husband, Harold Gentry. Authorities have said she tried to hire three people to kill Gentry in the weeks before his bullet-riddled body was found in his rural North Carolina home.

Neumar was arrested in May.

Authorities in Ohio and Florida also are investigating her, in the deaths of her third husband and her only son. Plus, investigators are re-examining the death of her first husband. Neumar hasn't been charged in any of the other cases.
