NEW YORK -- A woman accused of stalking New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman is poised to get out of jail after five months behind bars.

Prosecutors and a Manhattan judge signed off Thursday on Louise Neathway's $300,000 bond package. Neathway was in custody while authorities worked out some legal technicalities.

She could be released later Thursday and will have to wear an ankle monitor.

Neathway has been held since her February arrest. Prosecutors say she stalked Cashman and squeezed $6,000 from him by threatening to hurt his reputation. She says they had a consensual affair.

Neathway also is facing a slate of other charges ranging from harassing her ex-husband to lying on an apartment application. She has pleaded not guilty to all of them.
