The Georgia housewife, her lover and the man they are accused of hiring to assassinate her wealthy ex-football player husband smiled and whispered to one another as they were reunited today in a Bahamas courtroom.

Lindsay Shiver 36, her barman beau Terrance Bethel, 28, and alleged hitman Faron Newbold, 29, are all accused of conspiring to murder Robert Shiver, 38, as he vacationed in the Abaco Islands.

Prosecutors say the trio discussed the hit over WhatsApp before former Shiver sent a photo of Robert, the father of her three young boys, to Newbold along with the instruction: ‘kill him.’

The petite former cheerleader was led off the prison bus in handcuffs and looked dressed for the beach in blue jeans, a white V-neck and flip flops, the same clothes she was spotted in 24 hours earlier.

Incredibly, she was wearing a $6,000 diamond-studded Cartier love bracelet but did not appear to be wearing a wedding ring on her immaculately manicured fingers.

A judge released Lindsay Shiver from Bahamas jail on $100k jail, but she will have to turn over her American passport and return to police station three times per week

As she was led inside Nassau’s Supreme Court, Shiver glanced nervously at Bethel who was already sitting inside and responded to his blonde, older lover with a nod of the head.

All three were ushered into a caged wooden dock, Bethel taking the seat next to Shiver and Newbold sitting to his other side as all three exchanged warm smiles and whispered to one another.

Prosecutor Cordell Frazier referred to the American as Lindsay Shirley Shiver and told the court she had paid her $100,000 cash bail and has provided copies of a lease agreement for a place she can stay in the Bahamas while awaiting trial.

Judge Cheryl Grant-Thompson told Shiver she would have to surrender her passport to a US embassy official but could apply to have it returned on a ‘case by case basis.’

She’ll have to report to a police station three times a week, abide by an 8pm to 6am curfew and can’t go within 100 feet of her husband.

‘I’m ordering your immediate release as all of the requirements have been satisfied,’ the judge told Shiver, who timidly replied ‘ok’ but said nothing more throughout the ten-minute hearing.

The ruling brings an end to her grueling 19-night stay at Nassau’s Fox Hill Prison, notorious for overcrowding, violence and grim conditions. 

Shiver left the neighboring police station minutes later after having a GPS ankle tag fitted and then popped into an awaiting Mercedes and took off. 

A source told DailyMail.com Shiver had been wearing her bling cartier bracelet throughout her entire spell of incarceration as guards could not find any sort of key or tool to remove it.

Insurance mogul Robert, former captain of the Auburn University football team, is safely back at the $2.5 million marital home in Thomasville, Georgia with their boys aged four, six and 10.

His family are regular visitors to sun-steeped Abaco where they own property in Baker’s Bay, an ultra-exclusive resort where Tom Brady, Justin Timberlake and Michael Jordan have sprawling coastal mansions.

DailyMail.com previously reported that ex-beauty pageant contestant Shiver has spent the past several months jetting back and forth from Georgia to the Caribbean to see Bethel, a barman at a nearby beach bar.

Her family and friends begged her to ‘come to her senses’ and end the fling when Robert found out about it and filed for divorce in April, according to a well-placed source.

By then his wife-of-13 years had become ‘completely obsessed’ with the handsome, younger man, it’s claimed.

Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com this week, Bethel declared his love for Shiver and said the marriage was on the rocks long before he came on the scene.

He predicted the case against them would fall apart because cops have blown a few heated remarks out of all proportion.

‘Go and get the transcripts from the police,’ the bar worker and businessman fumed in his first public comments.

‘They have had both of my phones for three weeks. They’ve been through every single message – there’s nothing there.

‘None of us have anything to hide. People are taking everything at face value and defaming us.’

Prosecutors will have to prove the three were engaged in a credible plot if they are to convict them of conspiracy to commit murder, which carries a prison sentence of 30 to 60 years.

The scheme emerged by chance when the management at Grabbers, a rum-soaked waterfront bar where staffer Bethel first hit it off with a vacationing Shiver, reported a break-in to police around July 20.

The thief had cut power cables and disabled the generator to ensure security cameras wouldn’t work before slipping inside the office to ransack a safe.

Fearing the work of an insider, cops insisted on looking at Bethel’s phone and stumbled across unrelated messages in which he allegedly told childhood pal Newbold he wanted to ‘murder’ Robert.

Sources say that Shiver suspected that her estranged husband was exerting influence to make life hard for her new lover.

The 36-year-old was granted $100,000 bail and ordered to remain in custody at Fox Hill prison in the Bahamas while her accused co-conspirators, Terrance Bethel and Faron Newbold were given $20,000 bail and a curfew

She sent Newbold a picture of Robert along with an alleged instruction to murder him, it’s claimed, leading to all three being arrested on July 21 and flown to Nassau, the Bahamian capital, to face charges.

Bethel, wearing a gray hoodie, jeans and sneakers, and politician’s son Newbold, who wore a smart button-down shirt and jeans to court, were fitted with ankle monitors and ordered to steer clear of one another after their release on $20,000 bail last week.

They were also told at today’s hearing to surrender their travel documents. Both men wore masks and tried to evade reporters.

Shiver and Robert were scheduled to square off on July 20 in Thomas County Superior Court, where they filed explosive counterclaims against one another in a hostile custody battle.

While Robert accused his wife of cheating, she countered with accusations of ‘physical and mentally cruel treatment.’

Shiver claimed her supposed affair was during a time of separation and was ‘legally condoned by husband’, according to court documents.

Her attorney suggested Robert was abusive, writing in a restraining order request: ‘(Shiver) feels unsafe in the marital home and has installed locks on the interior doors of the home for protection.

‘(Robert) has abused the wife in the home in the children’s presence on multiple occasions, not only physically but also mentally and emotionally.’

Alabama native Shiver graduated from Auburn University, where the two met in 2007 while Robert was captain of the football team.

Robert is the son of Allen Shiver, who served for more than four decades as CEO of Flowers Foods before stepping down in 2019 from the $5 billion company.

The pair have three sons together with the youngest just four years old. He proudly mentions his children in his Instagram profile which reads: ‘Dad to the trio!’

Robert signed with the NFL team Atlanta Falcons as a free agent but was let go in roster cuts ahead of the 2009 season and eventually became executive vice president for Senior Life Insurance Company.

Lindsay was named Miss Houston County in 2005 and finished second in the National Peanut Festival pageant.

DailyMail.com previously unmasked Newbold – alias Faylo – as a music producer and son of a local politician in Marsh Harbour, the main town in Abaco.

His day job is working as a structural engineer for a power company and friends have laughed off suggestions he was moonlighting as a killer-for-hire.

‘I’ve told you guys, I’ll speak to you when my lawyer says it’s OK,’ Newbold said Friday, after DailyMail.com tracked him down to a smart new home he built himself.

No charges have been filed in relation to the alleged robbery at Grabbers.
