A couple accused of stealing money intended for crime victims appeared in court Monday morning. The judge reduced bond for Eloise and Daniel Mireles to $25,000 each.

Eloise Mireles worked as an administrative assistant for the Harris County District Attorney's office. Prosecutors say she and her husband skimmed $230,000 from a victims' restitution fund over the past seven years. Mireles was fired in August.
