Man rigged door to ‘elec­tro­cute’ wife

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A JEAL­OUS hus­band rigged the front door of his home so his es­tranged preg­nant wife would be elec­tro­cuted when she opened it.

In a Facebook post, Fla­gler County Sher­iff Rick Sta­ley called the case one of the “most bizarre do­mes­tic vi­o­lence cases” he’s seen.

Deputies said Michael Wil­son, 32, was ar­rested in Knoxville, Ten­nessee, and faces charges of at­tempted ag­gra­vated bat­tery on a preg­nant woman and grand theft of a firearm.

The woman’s fa­ther called cops af­ter Wil­son made sus­pi­cious state­ments about keep­ing chil­dren away from the door of the Palm Coast home.

Deputies found the front door bar­ri­caded, with burn marks near the door han­dle.

When a deputy kicked the door, a large spark was ob­served.
