The cousin of Aaron Hernandez was released from jail on Thursday on $15,000 cash bail.

Tanya Singleton is facing charges of criminal contempt and conspiracy after authorities say she helped Hernandez's alleged accomplice Ernest Wallace flee to Florida after the murder of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd.

Singleton also refused to testify before a grand jury. On Thursday the judge agreed to Singleton's release under the conditions that she wear a GPS monitoring device, report for probation twice a week, and reside in Bristol County, Mass.

Prosecutors say Wallace helped Aaron Hernandez after he allegedly murdered Lloyd at an industrial park near the former Patriot player's North Attleboro home.
