UPDATE (Feb. 27, 2017 6:28 p.m.)

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Adam Frasch has allowed supervised released on child custody charges from the Leon County Jail under strict conditions.

He must wear a GPS monitoring device, and can only travel to his home and medical practice in Thomasville, Ga. Otherwise he must stay within the limits of the 2nd Judicial Court. He must also surrender his passport, and is not allowed any contact with any witnesses in the case. He is also prohibited from contacting his children and the lawyers involved in his two contentious divorce cases.

Frasch made his first court appearance Thursday morning before his pre-trial release. He was brought into the Leon County Jail after being arrested over the weekend in Panama City, charged with custodial interference. His two children were with him at that time, and are now in protective custody.

He was going through a divorce with his wife Samira Frasch, who had temporary custody of the children. A maintenance worker found Samira dead in the pool at her home on the 8300 block of Inverness Dr. Saturday.

No word yet on how the former french model and mother of two may have died. Autopsy results are still pending. Her attorney says he had concerns about Adam Frasch, and what he was capable of doing. Frasch's attorney maintains his client's innocence.

Currently there is no court date yet scheduled for Frasch.
