MORGAN COUNTY, ALABAMA: Brian Mann, 34, who was charged with attempted murder after he allegedly poisoned his wife Hannah Petty with lead particles, was freed from custody on Wednesday afternoon, January 11, 2023, on a $500K bond to pay alimony and child support. According to a divorce case filed by his wife, the chiropractor poisoned his wife by “intentionally causing her to unwittingly ingest particles of lead,” which led her to be hospitalized from January 18, 2022, to March 3, 2022. In August 2022, he was charged, and on September 2, 2022, he was arrested for attempted murder.

According to DailyMail, after his arrest in 2022, he was released on a $500K bond on September 7 at that time as well, however, the conditions of that bond included turning in his guns, wearing an ankle monitor, and surrendering his passport. On September 14, his bond was revoked after he failed to provide the passport and was instructed to remain in the custody of the Morgan County Jail in Alabama. Morgan County Circuit Judge Charles Elliott said, "So, he turned in his guns. But a gun is not going to allow him to travel outside of the country. The biggest thing that someone can use if they want to accomplish a flight away from an area would be a passport. The one thing that allows him to travel out of the country legally is the one thing that we don’t have," according to Hartselle Enquirer.

In an affidavit filed in November to release Mann, his father stated reasons why his son wouldn’t flee if he was released. He wrote, as quoted by CBS, "It is my belief that Brian is not a flight risk. He has quite a bit of his life and resources invested in Morgan County, Alabama, and it is my belief that it is his intention to stay in Morgan County, Alabama, throughout the duration of these proceedings."

During a January 11 hearing, Judge Elliott said the case was at a “crossroads” as the longer Mann was in jail, the longer he wasn’t able to pay alimony or child support to his estranged wife and young children. He is currently $8,000 behind in those payments. As per News 19, the passport is still unaccounted for, according to court filings, which also state that the divorce proceedings are halted until the criminal proceedings are complete.
