VANCOUVER — A judge ruled that Kalista Andino, one of two women arrested for witness tampering in a deadly hit and run, can be released from the Clark County Jail.
The judge warned that witness tampering is serious and if she fails to follow through with the no contact order, she’ll be right back in jail. Andino is prohibited from calling, texting, emailing or having any third party contact with her boyfriend, Brandon Smith or his mother, Linda who was released on bail Tuesday.
Investigators believe that Brandon was behind the wheel of the truck that hit and killed two mothers on January 19th. A judge kept Andino behind bars until she could figure out living arrangements.
Smith’s attorney Jon McMullin gave the judge a notarized affidavit showing that he’s moved out of the couple’s apartment. Andino’s 5-month-old daughter is in state custody, but she’ll likely get the child back.
