WARSAW, Ind. (AP) -- An Indiana man has been arrested after police say he falsely accused an area officer of killing a Tennessee woman who has been missing for two years.
Michael Roy Wiggins was being held Tuesday on $100,000 bond in the Kosciusko County Jail. A jail officer didn't know if the 32-year-old North Webster resident had an attorney.
The Journal Gazette reports that Wiggins was arrested Monday on preliminary charges of obstruction of justice and false informing.
Police said Wiggins sent an email to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation alleging a North Webster officer took his squad car to Tennessee, abducted and killed nursing student Holly Bobo and then buried her body at a farm in northern Indiana in April 2011.
Police say the officer had recently arrested Wiggins.
