Two men in Georgia are accused of plotting to release a python into the home of one of their exes to eat her daughter, as part of a wider plan to harass her before eventually blowing up her home.

The scheme began in December 2022 when Stephen Glosser, 37, and Caleb Kinsey, 34, both from Richmond Hill, allegedly began messaging each other about placing the ex under surveillance.

According to the US District Attorney for the Southern District of Georgia, the pair intended to “create a plan to kill, intimidate, harass, or injure the victim”.

That plan included finding a large python to place into the home to eat her daughter, shooting arrows at her front door and mailing dog faeces or dead rats to her. They also spoke about scalping her, the indictment says.

Then in January 2023, Mr Glosser found the victim’s home online and mapped out a path to it. Mr Kinsey then acquired and built an “explosive device” at the former’s home.

They then carried out their plot to blow up the home on Dremeries Lake Court on 13 January 2023. No one was injured in the explosion.

It was reported at the time that the family had only just moved into the home, which was left with a “crater” inside and debris scattered across the front yard and street.

Having both fled the scene, the pair were arrested a few days later, according to a release from the Office of Commissioner of Insurance and Safety Fire.

Both Mr Glosser and Mr Kinsey are charged with stalking; use of an explosive to commit another felony offence; conspiracy to use an explosive to commit a felony; and possession of an unregistered destructive device.

Mr Kinsey also is charged with false statement during the purchase of a firearm, and possession of firearms by a convicted felon.

If convicted, the conspiracy charge carries a 20 year prison sentence, with another 10 years for using an explosive device to commit a felony. The DA’s office said that there is no parole in the federal system.
