Get to Know Your Neighbors

Michael Selleneit, 54, pleaded guilty in January to several charges including attempted murder in an October 2011 attack on a neighbor, whom Selleneit had declared was raping Selleneit’s wife — “telepathically.” In fact, cops said, Selleneit had been claiming that “for years,” though he hadn’t taken action until that time. His wife, Meloney, was also charged, as she allegedly goaded hubby, saying “go for it” and even supplying a gun. Both Selleneits have been extensively examined by mental health professionals; turns out Michael is the saner of the two. He was ruled “competent” to stand trial; so far, Meloney has not.
