Molly Martens and her father Tom have been granted bail in the US.
In 2017, they were found guilty of the second-degree murder of 39-year-old Limerick man Jason Corbett.
Mr Corbett was beaten to death in the bedroom of his North Carolina home in August 2015.
His wife Molly Martens and her father Tom, a former FBI agent, were found guilty of second-degree murder.
They had served almost four years of a 20 to 25-year jail term when the North Carolina Supreme Court quashed the convictions over evidential issues.
Bail was granted at a court sitting this evening on a bond of $200,000, meaning they're now set to be released from prison pending a retrial or plea bargain.
Last week, the Corbett family said they were 'devastated' to learn Molly and Tom Martens had been offered a plea deal by US prosecutors.
Such a deal, if accepted, would mean the pair wouldn't face a retrial.
Speaking on The Hard Shoulder, Irish Independent reporter Ralph Riegel said the deal would see them plead guilty to the voluntary manslaughter of Mr Corbett.
He said: "The average sentence for a voluntary manslaughter sentence in North Carolina is between five years, seven months and nine years - now Tom and Molly Martens will have been four years behind bars next August.
"If they do accept a plea deal, there will then be a negotiation over the type of sentence involved. Critically, if they turn down the plea deal, they will then be looking at a full retrial."
