Conviction in Md. bridal dress break-in
A Hagerstown jury has convicted a woman of burglary, assault and reckless endangerment for breaking into her neighbor's house wearing nothing but a bridal skirt and veil on a snowy night in February.
Thirty-three-year old Melissa Wagaman testified Thursday that a combination of cold medicine and marijuana apparently made her hallucinate she was getting married and that her mother was locked in her neighbor's basement.
Wagaman broke a dining room window with her head, causing shattered glass to cut an artery in Aaron Parrott's arm.
The jury rejected defense arguments that Wagaman truly believed she needed to enter Parrott's house and that she didn't know she was endangering him.
She faces up to 23 years in prison.
