Woman Takes Revenge on Couple Who Introduced Husband To Other Woman

April 28, 1989

HAMILTON, Mont. (AP) _ A woman pleaded guilty to shooting up the home of the couple who introduced her new husband to another woman.

Rhonda Nilles, 24 entered the guilty plea to a felony charge of aggravated burglary on Wednesday, the same day the final divorce decree was issued to end her marriage to Dan Nilles.

The couple was married last Dec. 3. Shortly afterward, Lisa and Terry Townsend introduced Dan Nilles to a friend. On Dec. 18, Nilles told his wife he was leaving her for the other woman, court records said.

Two days later, the Townsends returned home to find their dog shot dead, blood stains around the room and bullet holes in Christmas gifts and in a mounted deer head on the wall.

Rhonda Nilles was found at the scene of a one-vehicle accident nearby and was taken to a hospital in this western Montana town.

Her plea, entered in Ravalli County District Court, was part of a plea bargain calling for no jail time and under which Rhonda Nilles agreed to pay $2,575 in restitution to the Townsends, officials said.
