WSFA News 12 Update: Wilding Murder Case Deepens

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -- There's a twist in the story of a man accused of killing his wife eight years ago.

WSFA 12 News has learned that this is not the first time Albert Wilding has been booked on murder charges.

Wilding confessed to the murder of his mother-in-law in Louisville, Kentucky 38 years ago. 

He was charged with voluntary manslaughter and ordered to serve 21 years in prison, but only served a year behind bars before his sentence was pardoned by then Kentucky Governor Louie Nunn.

The defense attorney from the Kentucky murder case, Bob Fleming, says this latest charge may be karma.

"Less than a year...that's a crime. That was a brutal murder," said Fleming. "He should have done every day that the sentence provided for."

WSFA 12 News' sister station in Lexington, Kentucky (WAVE-TV) reports that in Wilding's confession he attacked his mother-in-law in her kitchen, breaking a bottle over her head. He then admitted to choking her and repeatedly stabbing her corpse with an ice-pick before leaving her in a pool of blood.

In the Montgomery case, prosecutors claim Wilding received $800,000 from life insurance that he had taken out on his wife, Judie Wilding, who vanished in 2000.

Albert Wilding is being held in the Montgomery County Jail without bond.

There is currently a gag order in place in this case.
