Former astronaut Lisa Nowak wants a judge to let her remove the ankle bracelet that allows authorities to track her location as she awaits trial on charges of attacking a romantic rival, saying it is "an unnecessary and excessive expense."
Nowak is paying $105 a week - $2,940 so far - for the monitoring device as a condition of her release, according to a court filing her attorney says was made Thursday.
Nowak has pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted kidnapping, battery and burglary with assault. She is accused of attacking Air Force Capt. Colleen Shipman at an Orlando airport in February.
