CARTHAGE, Texas - A former mortician whose killing of a rich widow shook an East Texas town and later inspired a movie was released on bond Tuesday after the district attorney who prosecuted him agreed to let him out of a life sentence. Bernie Tiede was set free after a judge who recommended his prison term be reduced set a $10,000 bond.
