Inmate and psychologist who loved him charged with threatening a murder witness

The FBI describes this case as “one of the more outrageous prison plots the FBI has investigated in recent memory.” An Ohio inmate—and the clinical psychologist who was in love with him—were indicted and charged with threatening a murder witness, along with three other accomplices. “I’ve seen a lot of creative inmates trying to get released,” said Special Agent Eric Rardain, who investigated the case out of the FBI’s Philadelphia Field Office, “but never in my 22 years of law enforcement have I seen anyone go to this extreme.”

On October 16, 2014, the FBI announced that Nicholas Stanishia, 44, an Ohio prison inmate, clinical psychologist Marcia J. Weber, 46, of Loveland, Ohio, Martin Jay Wilson, 43, of Kansas City, Missouri, Jody Six, 40, an Ohio prison inmate and Anthony Vaughn, 41, an Ohio prison inmate were indicted by a federal grand jury and charged with an interstate conspiracy to transmit threats to a witness.
