MADISON (AP) -

A woman accused along with her husband of starving and torturing the man's 15-year-old daughter has been released from jail.

   A Dane County judge lowered bail for the couple to $9,000 each on Friday. Bail had been set at $22,500 for the 41-year-old man and at $30,000 for his 42-year-old wife.

   Dane County sheriff's Lt. Brian Hayes said the woman posted the $9,000 cash Friday. The husband was still in custody Saturday.

   Defense attorneys argued the couple had no money and that their bail should be reduced to signature bonds.

   The couple has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
