A federal judge has amended an order granting visitation rights between a former Aryan Nations lawyer and the wife he's accused of trying to have killed.
U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill approved the highly monitored visits between 65-year-old Edgar Steele and his wife, Cyndi Steele, while he is being held in the Ada County jail pending trial.
Edgar Steele has pleaded not guilty to hiring Larry Fairfax to kill his wife and claims he's a victim of a government conspiracy.
Edgar Steele was allowed visits from his wife while being held in a Spokane, Wash. jail. His trial was moved to Boise last month, and Winmill's order permits one visit per week with his wife. They are barred from discussing the case.
