Woman shot in the head by husband files for divorce
MADEIRA, Ohio (Rich Jaffe) -- A high profile shooting in Madeira has grown more ugly and public.
That's because the shooting victim, Misty Seylhouwer, filed for divorce against her husband, radio talk show host Blake Seylhouwer.
Blake Seylhouwer was released on bond after being charged with felonious assault and domestic violence following the shooting of his wife in the driveway of their Madeira home in August 2014. The divorce case his wife filed against him shed new and disturbing light on what had clearly been a very troubled relationship.
In the complaint Misty said she'd been in the kitchen making pasta and chocolate chip cookies with the couple's 4-year-old daughter when she went outside to deal with her husband. It was a moment later that he shot at her with a 30 caliber rifle. The bullet bounced off the driveway and seriously injured her with fragments of concrete.
She said the attack came just days after she'd confronted her husband about a variety of twisted sexual issues. She said she'd found out that Blake had met a woman on a "bondage website" and that they had an ongoing relationship. The woman told Misty her husband had a "daddy-daughter" fetish.
When Misty told her husband about the conversation he admitted he was having sex with prostitutes. Seylhouwer said after she married her husband in 2008 he told her he'd "tried to induce a 13-year-old child into losing her virginity on film" for $10,000, traveling from his then home in Texas to Columbus to meet the child. He was arrested by police. Blake plead guilty to lesser charges and was convicted.
Misty said she recently looked at her husband's computer and found that he'd downloaded a "pornographic movie about a 14-year-old girl who lost her virginity in a gang rape." She said her husband claimed the download was an accident.
Misty said since her husband was released from jail on the shooting incident she moved location to location and lived in fear for her life. In addition to all the salacious sexual issues, the divorce complaint also laid out the couples financial issues. That included the fact that Misty said her husband used his businesses to pay for the couples rather extravagant lifestyle; certainly issues the IRS would find interesting.
Blake Seylhouwer's attorney told Local 12 that, "Unsupported, untested allegations made in a divorce proceeding are the most suspect in the entire court system."
He also said the divorce case pales in comparison to the criminal charges. Seylhouwer will return to court for another hearing on the criminal charges on September 9.
