Government prosecutors warned that Walker is a flight risk because she was born in Switzerland and could be granted asylum in that country.

Judge John V. Acosta ordered her to surrender her passport and told her not to leave her home county, except to go to nearby Hermiston for groceries and doctor appointments.

A total of 18 people have been charged in the case.

Walker's daughter, Angelica Kreuger, says her mother loves animals and would never watch a chicken die in a fight.
