An Alabama chiropractor poisoning his estranged wife with lead was once again released from jail last week. 

Brian Mann, 34, was released on a $500,000 bond Wednesday in order to be able to pay alimony and child support, according to court documents obtained by WHNT

His release comes with strict conditions, Judge Charles Elliot said Wednesday, detailing that anything as small as a “speeding ticket” would have him end up behind bars again. 

Mann was first arrested and charged with attempting to kill his wife with lead dietary supplements in September. 

At the time, the chiropractor was also released on a $500,000 bond on the condition he provide his passport to prevent him from fleeing. 

However, Mann failed to provide the document and he was placed back into custody a few days later. 

Mann allegedly gave his wife, Hannah Pettey, pills that had particles of lead in them from late summer 2021 through winter of 2021-2022, according to the Hartselle Enquirer

Pettey’s lawyer, Jerry Knight, has claimed that Mann allegedly told his wife the pills “would strengthen her immune system.” 

Pettey, 24, is an esthetician, according to the Daily Mail.

Ultimately, she was hospitalized at the University of Alabama at Birmingham hospital for ad poisoning from January 2022 through early March. 

She filed for divorce only days after she was discharged. 

At the time of his original arrest, Mann was also accused of holding five life insurance policies payable upon his wife’s death that tallied up to benefits of $1.3 million. 

Additionally, he has been accused of applying for two additional insurance policies that were worth up to $1.5 million, payable upon her death. 

Those policies were reportedly denied, according to the Hartselle Enquirer.

Mann has reportedly denied the allegations against him.

Under his new release, Mann will not be allowed to leave his home after 6 p.m. or before 8 a.m., WHNT reported. 

Additionally, the 34-year-old will be required to spend every weekend in jail starting at Friday 4 p.m. until Monday at 8 a.m.

He will also be required to wear a GPS ankle monitor.

While the judge on the case sought to keep Mann in jail, he said last week that the case was at a “crossroads” because the man was unable to pay alimony or child support while in custody. 

As of Friday, Mann was $8,000 behind in those payments, according to the outlet. 

Ultimately, the judge decided to move forward with the release as keeping Mann in custody would inadvertently punish his estranged wife and daughter.

Other conditions of his release include being barred from contacting Pettey, being subject to random drug screenings, and being barred from being in possession of alcohol. 

His passport has reportedly still not been turned in to authorities. 

A jury trial in the case has been scheduled for October 23.
