Pervez Musharraf Gets Bail in Benazir Bhutto Murder Case

Riccardo S. Savi/WireImage(ISLAMABAD) -- Pervez Musharraf is one step closer to freedom, but he's not out of the woods yet.

A judge granted bail on Monday to the former Pakistani president and military strongman.  Musharraf stands accused of being involved in the December 2007 assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

Bail was granted when the man who made the accusation refused to testify.  

Despite the bail, Musharraf remains under house arrest while two other cases against him make their way through Pakistan's complicated legal system.
