BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The 39-year-old man accused of murdering a pregnant school teacher has bonded out of jail.

Robert Marks is accused of murdering 40-year-old Lyntell Washington, whose badly decomposed body was found near Grosse Tete in June.

Marks pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to charges of second-degree murder and first-degree feticide. WBRZ-TV (https://bit.ly/2dSn0hX ) reports Marks posted a $500,000 bond and was released late Friday.

Marks was the assistant principal at Brookstown Middle School, the same school where Washington worked. He is currently on leave.

Investigators said Marks and Washington were having an affair and Washington was 7 months pregnant with Marks’ child at the time of the murder. Marks was married to another woman at the time.

Marks’ next court date is Jan. 5.
