But You Don't Plug Her In To The Mains You Eejit

Stroll on! shocking I tells ye.

A 37-year-old Lower Windsor Township man is charged with using electricity to shock his wife in what police describe as some "bizarre sex" that killed her inside the bedroom of their southern York County trailer.

Toby Taylor, 37, of the 100 block of Oak Leaf Court, was charged Thursday with involuntary manslaughter and reckless endangerment.

Late Wednesday night, police say they responded Taylor's home in the Restless Oak Village mobile home park for a reported electrocution that turned into a cardiac arrest.
Upon arriving, police found Kirsten Taylor, 29, unconscious and began to perform CPR. She was taken to York Hospital where she was pronounced dead at 11:25 p.m., according to the coroner's

During the investigation, police discovered Toby Taylor attached alligator clips on the end of a stripped electric cord which he attached to her breasts, according an arrest warrant affidavit. He would then use the off and on switch on a power strip to shock his wife, according to court records.
The jolt of electricity is believed to have triggered the heart attack, said Police Chief David Sterner.

"This was some bizarre sex," he said.

An autopsy conducted at the Lehigh Valley Medical Center Thursday listed the cause and manner of death as pending, said York County Coroner Barry Bloss. A final determination awaits further testing of the electrical equipment used on the victim and a toxicology test, he said.

Kirsten Taylor had several visible burns to her body, including her breasts, which clearly indicated electrocution, he said.

After he was taken into custody, Toby Taylor claimed he used electricity to sexually arouse his wife and himself in performing previous sex acts, Bloss said.

"This was bizarre sex. Some people would say this was perverted sex. I have never seen anything like this before," Bloss said.

Bloss said Sterner said even if Kirsten Taylor consented to the use of electricity, Toby Taylor should be charged because his action showed a reckless disregard for human life.

"Even if you did it before, you have to know you could kill someone," Bloss said.
Sterner said Toby Taylor also lied to police and tried to conceal evidence after his wife lost consciousness. He said that he initially blamed a hair dryer for the injuries and dressed her naked body.

"If this was an accident, he obviously went too far," Sterner said.
