    A strange situation turned even stranger when police searching the home of a man accused of killing his wife before shooting himself discovered a box full of pipe bombs.

    Witnesses told police that 37 year old Michael T. Giles and his wife 26 year old Emily C. Giles had been drinking in a barn with friends behind their home near 8000 North County Road 400 West in Hendricks County on Monday night. 

    When they got into an argument, Michael Giles followed Emily Giles into the home. 

    Friends said they heard gunshots and found the woman shot on the sidewalk. Michael Giles was found with a gunshot wound to the head.

    Emily Giles was pronounced dead at the scene. 

    Her husband was flown by medical helicopter to St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis with serious injuries. 

    A child who was asleep in the home at the time was not injured. 

    When police searched the couple’s home Tuesday night, they discovered a metal box with 17 pipe bombs inside. 

    The bombs were loaded with nails and BBs.

    They were destroyed at the scene by members of the Indianapolis police bomb squad early this morning.
