COLONIAL HEIGHTS, Va. (WTVR)–The estranged wife of a Colonial Heights man, who stands accused in his death, could soon be out of jail.

The city prosecutor’s office says Ashley Mack was granted $150,000 dollars bond Monday.

She’s one of four people accused of brutally beating Rusty Mack in February. Mack died a little more than two weeks later.

Court documents reveal that Mack was hit and kicked outside of his Colonial Heights apartment by four people. One of the alleged attackers was his estranged wife, whom he had only been married to for a few months.

“You just don’t bring your new boyfriend to your husband’s house,” Mack’s father said.

“That’s just doesn’t make sense. You’re asking for trouble.”

Mack’s stepmother said there was no reason for the violence. His father cannot grasp why the group would have come back for a second time.

After his death, Ashley Mack, Jonathan Guy, Francis Blaha and teenager girl were charged with murder by mob.
