SUFFIELD - A woman who police say lied about being raped by a masked intruder had actually slashed her body and choked herself with a dog collar in an effort to create "convincing" injuries, according to an affidavit for her arrest.
The woman, Kelly M. Wilson, 29, was arrested July 3 and charged with second-degree falsely reporting an incident, second-degree making a false statement, and misuse of the 911 emergency system. She is free on $50,000 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned in Enfield Superior Court on July 16.
The incident occurred on April 14 when Wilson called police and reported that a man had attacked her in her home, according to the affidavit.
Responding officers said in the report they saw Wilson lying on the floor, so they forced their way in and found her "visibly upset and crying" with a bruised eye and "cuts all over her body."
