Florida Man Acquitted Of Trying To Rig House To Electrocute Pregnant Wife

June 23, 2019


BUNNELL, Fla. - A jury has acquitted a Flagler County man of attempted murder in what investigators called a plot to electrocute his estranged wife by rigging their front door with wires.


The Daytona Beach News Journal reported that jury did convict Michael Wilson, 33, of stealing a gun from the home and of misdemeanor attempted battery against Ashley Wilson, who was pregnant at the time.


Prosecutors said the December 2017 scheme involved rigging a makeshift electrical conduit at their home. Ashley Wilson never touched the door and became suspicious when he told her not to let their daughter near it.


Michael Wilson testified he set up the trap because video surveillance cameras were missing. He faces up to six years in prison for the stolen gun conviction. He will be sentenced in August.
