JANESVILLE (AP) -- The man accused of burning a woman's body at his property in Rock County planned to escape jail.
A criminal complaint say 29 year old, Nathan Middleton wrote his mother a letter asking her to blow out the jail wall with explosives in order to escape.
The letter instructed her to look online for explosives to use in the escape. It says he also told his mother to switch the license plates on a rental car and leave it running outside the jail with a change of clothes.
The Evansville man has been in custody since Nov. 20 on charges connected to burning the body of Aprina Paul in a backyard fire pit in October.
Middleton will be back in court Monday but without his original attorney. The attorney has withdrawn from the case.
