NASHVILLE (AP) — A Tennessee prisoner was accused in a criminal complaint of sending harassing letters to the widow of the man he murdered.
Hank Wise sent numerous communications over several years to his victim’s wife, according to the complaint unsealed on Tuesday.
They included holiday cards in which Wise professed his love for the woman and told her that he thinks about her every day, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Nashville.
Wise is serving a 23-year sentence for shooting and killing a man identified in the complaint as “B.G.” in front of his wife in Nashville in 2009.
Wise has now been charged with mail stalking. If convicted of the charge, Wise faces up to five years in federal prison.
