WEST PLAINS, MO (KAIT) -

A southern Missouri family is frustrated after a little girl is allowed to live with her father, the man accused of murdering her mother.

Jason House is accused of murdering his estranged wife, Bobbi House, at a McDonald’s in West Plains two months ago.

House was released from jail after posting a $250,000 bond.

As part of the agreement on his release, he’s not allowed to have contact with any of the murder witnesses, except for his 11-year-old daughter.

According to NBC affiliate KY3, the girl is allowed to live with Jason House.

In an interview with the Springfield TV station, Bobbi House’s niece, Ariana Massey, said she’s concerned about that situation.

She fears House may influence his daughter’s testimony.

"Now she can go to the court and say 'I didn't say that' or 'I didn't see that.' So it's kind of scary,” Massey told KY3.

House’s defense attorney isn’t concerned about the living situation.

According to online records, House will appear in court for an arraignment on Monday, Dec. 19.

He’s expected to enter a not guilty plea.
