They also say her boyfriend, Alec Fleck, helped her in an attempt to run to Houston to in hopes they would blend in with the chaos ensuing from the hurricane damage.
Pearson was arrested in Colorado and brought back to Washington.
Dugar's family was in court asking the judge to keep both suspects jailed.
“It's unbelievable that someone would leave somebody there to die, when the fire department is only 75 feet away, said the victim’s aunt, Karen Jones.
Fleck had his bail reduced from $150,000 to $2,500, while Gracey Pearson remains in jail on $150,000 bail.
Both of them will be back in court at the end of the month.
