Alabama News

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama woman has been convicted on charges of conspiring with a friend to bomb the pickup truck of her estranged boyfriend.

Court records show a federal judge in Montgomery convicted 36-year-old Ashley Nicole Haydt of Dothan on explosives and conspiracy charges on Thursday.

Local news outlets reported her co-defendant, Sylvio King, pleaded guilty previously and testified against Haydt during the four-day trial. A bomb planted in the work truck of Haydt’s former boyfriend went off in October 2017, injuring the man.

Police say King sent a message to Haydt afterward saying he had “taken care of the problem.”
