A mother accused of leaving her children home alone so she could fly to Africa to be married now has a better chance of getting out of jail.Today a judge reduced the bond for Shannel Mosely from $275,000 to $200,000. But her attorney argues the amount is still too high for what she did.

Investigators say she left her six children and two other children in her northwest Harris County home alone for several days. She claims her sister was supposed to watch the kids.
