A Utah woman admitted in court that she encouraged her husband to shoot a neighbor she claimed had raped her “telepathically.”

Meloney Selleneit, 55, agreed to a reduced charge of guilty, but mentally ill, to criminal solicitation and unlawful weapons possession, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

The charges stem from a shooting in 2011 in which Selleneit’s husband, Michael, shot and wounded their neighbor Tony Pierce.

The Salt Lake Tribune reported that after the alleged shooting, Michael Selleneit said he acted in self-defense because Pierce had been telepathically raping his wife for years and using cocaine to control her mind.

Michael Selleneit was sentenced to 30 years in prison for the shooting.

His wife is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 31.

Both are being held at a state hospital, until they are found competent to serve their prison sentences, authorities said.
