U.S. District Judge Terrence McVerry ruled Wednesday, two days after 40-year-old Christine Korbe's request.
Korbe is being held in the Cambria County Jail in Ebensburg, more than 60 miles east of Pittsburgh.
She's accused of shooting FBI Special Agent Samuel Hicks when he came to arrest her husband on drug charges at their Glenshaw home on Nov. 19. Her husband, Robert Korbe, was wanted on drug charges.
Hicks left behind a wife and 3-year-old son.
Korbe's children are 5 and 10 years old. The judge said the jail has adequate facilities for such a meeting.
Korbe acknowledges shooting Hicks, but said she believed police were intruders and feared for her children. Prosecutors said Korbe knew Hicks was an officer.
Prosecutors maintain that police loudly announced who they were and that Korbe shot Hicks maliciously.
