Man charged in hit man case will remain in jail, despite bail being posted

PORTLAND, Ore. - A man accused of hiring a hit man to kill his wife will remain in jail a little longer, despite the fact that his daughter bailed him out.

Bail for Michael Kuhnhausen, Sr. was set at $1 million and on Friday his daughter showed up with $100,000 in bail money.  However, Kuhnhausen is required to wear a security ankle bracelet, which cannot be fitted until Tuesday, meaning he will remain in jail until then.

Kuhnhausen faces charges surrounding an attack on his wife in September.   When Susan Kuhnhausen arrived home from work, an intruder attacked her with a hammer.  She fought the man off and strangled him to death with her bare hands. 

Investigators believe Michael Kuhnhausen hired the man to kill his wife.  One week after the attack, he was arrested under suspicion of attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder.
