Man Accused of Killing Wife Wins Primary Election From Behind Bars

An Indiana man accused of killing his wife has won a local primary election from behind bars.

Andrew Wilhoite, 40, has been incarcerated at the Boone County Jail after telling police in March that he threw a concrete flower pot at his wife, Elizabeth “Nikki” Wilhoite, 41, and dumped her body over a bridge.

A friend of Nikki Wilhoite said she had just completed her final chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer.

Wilhoite was one of three Republicans to advance in the local election for the Clinton Township Board — which consists of three members, and only three candidates entered the race. The murder suspect garnered 60 votes, while his competitors secured 110 and 106 votes.

Under Indiana law, individuals facing felony charges can run for office, but they become ineligible once convicted.

“Under our legal system, every person is innocent until proven guilty,” said Brad King, co-director of the Indiana Election Division. “If a candidate is ultimately convicted, then depending upon the timing of that conviction, the person can be replaced on the ballot by the political party that has a vacancy.”

Andrew Wilhoite has been charged with murder, and his next court date is scheduled for May 27.

    Too bad he’s not in Los Angeles because he never would have done any jail time thanks to our criminal-loving District Attorney whose under Recall.

    That is it! Only in America can an idiot be elected for the presidency. And, now, this? Only in America can a felon run for a government vacancy. Have we lost our minds?

      Right on point. Our country has lowered its values and respect to a deep grave. We will need a revival and change in congress if we want to survive the many Dina going on today. A lot of people need to find a good church home that believes in the Bible and RBR yesterday before it is too late. Seems like a repeat of what happened in Sodom and
      Gamora! We all should know what happened!
