Travolta and his family were staying in Grand Bahama at their vacation home when Jett suffered a seizure and died on January 2.

Prosecutors say the Bridgewater and Lightbourne threatened to go public with a document that protected emergency responders from liability.

Both defendants have pled not guilty and are currently free on bail.
