Andrew Wilhoite Wins GOP Primary While Charged with Murder

An Indiana man who is currently sitting in jail awaiting trial in the alleged murder of his cancer-stricken wife has won a Republican primary to potentially hold an elected to public office — a move that adds another bizarre wrinkle to a case that has already been marred with ethical conundrums due to the defendant’s mother’s connections to local politics.

According to online court records, Andrew Nathan Wilhoite, now 40, is charged with murdering his wife Elizabeth “Nikki” Wilhoite, then 41, of a rural section of Lebanon in Boone County.
