A champion arm wrestler from Worcester has been convicted in the death of his wife, who jumped out of a window to escape him. Allen Stilkey, 41, was convicted Monday of manslaughter. His wife, Lisa, jumped from a second-floor window of their home in February during what authorities said was a violent argument. Prosecutors said that Stilkey threatened to kill his wife and that he had recently taken out a $250,000 life insurance policy on her. Stilkey’s lawyer maintains his client was not responsible for his wife’s death. The Worcester Telegram & Gazette reported that both sides agree that the couple were having marital and financial problems, and that the fight began after they had been drinking heavily. (AP)
