NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) - A bond hearing was held Tuesday morning for a woman accused of murdering her boyfriend in Campbell County.

Shayna Hubers is being held without bond in the Campbell County Detention Center for the murder of Ryan Poston.

Her attorneys have been requesting a lower bond, saying she has no criminal record and is not a flight risk, but the judge refused again on Tuesday to lower her bond.

Hubers claims she shot Poston in self-defense.

Meanwhile, Poston's family has set up a memorial scholarship at Blessed Sacrament School in Fort Mitchell, where he attended grade school.

More than $70,000 has been received from 195 donors for the Ryan Carter Poston Memorial Scholarship.

The scholarship will be given each year to a Blessed Sacrament sixth grader who demonstrates "compassion and caring for others."

"The Ryan Carter Poston Memorial Scholarship is a way for our families to honor the memory of our murdered son and brother," said the Poston and Carter families. "We are devastated to lose our son in such a senseless and horrific manner. But this perpetual scholarship to an organization that shaped his character will continue his good work for a long time to come."

Blessed Sacrament Principal Maureen Hannon said the school is honored and thankful for the establishment of the Ryan Carter Poston Memorial Scholarship.
