DA Of The Day: West Virgina Man Fakes Wife's Death So She Could Avoid Jail Sentence

Friday, June 5th

It's time for another edition of the DA of the day!

We had a few strong candidates this time around, but this story had to take the DA prize!

A West Virginia woman and her husband faked her disappearance by pretending she plummeted from an overlook as part of a scheme to keep her out of having to go to prison!

Julie Wheeler and Rodney Wheeler were arrested Tuesday on multiple charges including conspiracy and giving false information to West Virginia State Police.

The kicker? Authorities searched for days, but found her “alive and well” hiding in a closet in her home!
