Man accused of sex electrocution of wife

CRALEY, Pa. (AP) - January 25, 2008 Officials say 37-year-old Toby Taylor was jailed Thursday in lieu of $100,000 bail on involuntary manslaughter and reckless endangerment charges.

Authorities say Kirsten Taylor was found unconscious Wednesday night at their Lower Windsor Township home. She was taken to York Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Police charging documents say Toby Taylor first said his wife was shocked by a hair dryer. But police say when burns were found, he told them he had clipped a cord to his wife and plugged it into an electric strip three or four times.

York County Coroner Barry Bloss calls it a case of "bizarre sex," and says, "Even if you did it before, you have to know you could kill someone."
