A judge has denied a reduction in bond for the widow of a Fort Hood Soldier who has been accused of robbing a man at gunpoint.

Penny Morales has been charged with aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony in Texas.

Morales reportedly met a man on a dating site and allowed another man to rob him at gunpoint on October 29.

The second suspect, Matthew Wilson, 33, of Killeen, was also arrested.

On Tuesday, Judge Steve Duskie of the 426th Judicial District Court denied Morales a reduction in bond, which is currently set at $150,000.

According to KDH, Wilson also remains in jail on a bond of the same amount, though there is no hearing scheduled for him yet.

Morales is the widow of Pvt. Gregory Wedel-Morales, who was found dead in June of 2020. The circumstances surrounding his demise are currently being investigated by the Killeen Police.
