Pa. state police say it’s one of the most bizarre alleged attempted murder cases they’ve ever investigated.

As KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh reports, a husband in Westmoreland County, Pa., is accused of rigging a tripwire at the top of his stairs at home in an alleged plot to kill his wife.

“It was obviously thought through,” trooper Stephen Limani told KDKA. “I don’t know how long he was thinking this through. You could definitely see there was a line tied across. There was nothing accidental about this.”

The accused husband is identified as William Dankesreiter Jr. of Derry Township.

State police allege he used fishing line as a tripwire at the top of his steps in an attempt to tried to kill his wife.

The woman, Laura Dankesreiter did, indeed, trip, troopers tell KDKA, but her quick reaction likely saved her from injury – or worse.
