A Queens woman acquitted of murdering her husband was released on bail Monday as she fights a gun charge related to the case.

Barbara Sheehan had been awaiting her sentencing on Rikers Island.

She is still facing prison time.

Earlier this month, Sheehan was convicted of a gun charge in connection with the death of her police officer husband who she said she killed in self defense.

"I'm very, very happy, just happy to be out. I want to just go home, take a bath, relax, spend some time with my family," Sheehan said.

"Get something good to eat and then she's going to rest and maybe we'll all get together tonight, the family, for dinner," said Sheehan's father, Mike Henry.

"I didn't feel she belonged there. She belonged home with her family, with us, and the rest of her family, her children," said Sheehan's mother, Barbara Henry.

Sheehan faces 3.5 to 15 years in prison for the gun conviction.

She is scheduled to be sentenced on November 10.

Her attorney is planning an appeal.
