Heidi Mann of Rib Lake appeared in Taylor County Court for a bond hearing Monday morning.  District Attorney Kristi Tlusty requested that bond for Mann be set at $200,000 cash with conditions including no possession of firearms and no unsupervised contact with her children.  D.A. Tlusty told the court that Heidi Mann is facing 4 possible charges of 1st degree intentional homicide.  Mann’s attorney agreed with the terms but felt that $200,000 was excessive.  He said that it has been 4 months since the alleged infractions.  She has been cooperative with the Taylor County Sheriff’s office and Human Services during the investigation.  He felt if Mann was released on bond she wouldn’t return home but would live with another area couple.  Court Commissioner William Grunewald indicated that after he read the probable cause report he felt if Heidi Mann is convicted she would face an extended prison term.  Faced with that fact could make the defendant a flight risk.  Grunewald indicated that bond has a 2 fold purpose.  First to insure that the defendant appears for all court proceedings and second to protect the public.  Bond for Heidi Mann was placed at $200,000 cash.  She may not have any unsupervised contact with her children.  Grunewald felt the request for no possession of firearms was not relevant so he over ruled that request.  D.A. Tlusty told the court that she expects charges to be filed within 5 business days, before 9 A.M. Monday June 24th.  The initial appearance was set for June 25th at 2:30.  37 year old Heidi Mann is accused of attempting to kill 4 of her children, ages 3, 5, 8, and 11 by carbon monoxide asphyxiation. Sheriff Bruce Daniels said Monday that the children are physically OK and are being cared for by family members.  Daniels said his department learned of the incident last week.  A silent Heidi Mann was escorted from the courtroom for booking wearing an orange jail jumpsuit.
