Police Charge Husband Of Douglas Woman Who Died After Fall

By Beth Germano, WBZ-TV

DOUGLAS (CBS) – A 40-year-old Douglas man is under arrest, charged with manslaughter in the death of his wife Lisa, who fell out a window at the couple’s Gilboa Street home just after midnight Friday.

Investigators have not released details of how the 44-year-old woman fell to her death from a second floor bedroom window, but Allen Stilkey is also charged with assault and battery and threatening to commit a crime. Neighbors say they woke to the sound of police at the home, and were stunned to learn of the horrific fall.

Lisa Bombara who lives across the street and went to school with the victim, says she didn’t know of any trouble in the home. “Everybody who knew her loved her. She was very energetic, outgoing, I can’t possibly see how this could have happened,” she said.

According to Bombara, the couple was married a year and a half ago. “I don’t know the circumstances, but if he contributed to her going out that window in any way, I don’t understand,” she said.

Police responded after receiving a 911 call at 12:03 a.m. They found Lisa Stilkey severely injured, and she later died at UMass Medical Center in Worcester where she was transported.

Stilkey was arrested Friday night at the Douglas Police station, but a neighbor says he was handcuffed and put in the back of a cruiser at the scene.

He’s being held on $500,000 bail and will be arraigned on Monday.

    Donna… I am so terribly sorry for your loss of Lisa. This is so unfair. But I hope the Justice system is tough on that “man” who was her husband. Much love being sent your way. DA Herrmann, your buddy in NJ

        Don’t worry Ron, he will. Someday something will happen to someone he cares about (if that’s at all possible) and some other jerk will make rude comments… then maybe he’ll know how it feels. Perhaps that will be the moment he finally GROWS UP!!!

  • Laura

    The two of you that made the comment about that “man” and “roid rage” need to shut up!! If you have the gall to say these things about him than you OBVIOUSLY never met him… you are closed-minded and unfit to judge ANYONE… so until you have wings and a halo you ought not judge ANYONE. Allen is a good man who would do ANYTHING for ANYONE… shame on you for saying what you’ve said!

    Tossing someone out the second floor window. What a MAN! I guess he was getting ready for his arm wrestling championship.

    • Laura

    Hackwannabe, you are so out of line to be making comments like that. This has nothing to do with armwrestling. I am just as upset as the next person & I have been friends with Allen for over 20 years!! I am bothered by this whole thing, but your comments are uncalled for & childish.

  • Ron

    people talking trash you are childish……. So because allen is an armwrestler you assume he is on ROIDS because of why? So i am an ARMWRESTLER also does that make me a ROID user comments like that are childish and uncalled for. My condolences go out to lisa’s family and friends. As well as i know allen and i think i speak for alot of people who know him are shocked of all this.So all you trash talking peeps can shut up and keep your comments to yourself.
