A Toronto woman accused of forcing her elderly mother-in-law to live in a barely heated garage this past winter was granted bail Thursday.

Dressed in a green prison sweatsuit, Qi Tan, 28, hung her head as an Ontario judge approved her release on $100,000 bail.
Last month, Tan and her husband, Kwong Yan, 43, were both charged with failure to provide the necessities of life and criminal negligence causing bodily harm after police found a 68-yearold woman suffering from frostbite to her arms, fingers and toes in a garage attached their house in east Toronto. A few days later, the couple turned themselves into police and have since remained in custody.

The original judge who heard their case denied them both bail, but on Thursday, a second judge ruled there was no reason to keep Tan in jail until her criminal trial begins. The evidence presented at the bail review hearing is under a publication ban.
Jindeng Feng, who was in life-threatening condition when she was found by police on Feb. 23, still remains in hospital.

Her condition is improving, although she continues to show signs of dementia and has been unable to give investigators a statement. When police discovered her, her skin was cold to the touch and the only food in the garage was a piece of bread.
A bail review hearing for Tan's husband, Kwong Yan, is scheduled for next week.
