SHALLOTTE, NC (WECT) - Two people who are behind bars accused of murder could post bond.

WECT received a letter from Adam Bradshaw's wife saying she is concerned the people accused of killing her husband will get out of jail before their trial.

"Craig Bryant should be held without bond until the trial considering his background and criminal history," said Shannon Bradshaw.  "That's a concern of mine."

Several published reports say bonds were set for Craig Bryant and Lora Moultrie, who are both charged with murdering the Century 21 realtor.

In April 2008, the Shallotte Police Department found Bradshaw's body in woods off of Watts Road in Ocean Isle Beach.  They said Bradshaw suffered a single gun-shot wound.

"My husband thought he was going on a listing call," said Shannon.  "It was a set-up for murder.  He didn't' know what hit him."

Bail was recently set at $310,000 for Bryant and $150,000 for Moultrie.  Shannon says presenting bond is unacceptable.

"If they do get out, they can disappear and not be there for the trial," said Shannon.  "My family and I were assured in the beginning that they would be held without bond until the trial.  I am wondering why the bond is so low."

According to the Brunswick County District Attorney's Office, the accused are entitled to a bond since it's not a death penalty case.

Both Bryant and Moultrie remain behind bars at this time.  Their trials are expected to take place sometime at the beginning of the year.
