Man arrested for accusing cop of murder

NORTH WEBSTER, Ind. — A North Webster man is in jail after police say falsely accused an officer of murder.

According Kosciusko County deputies, Michael Wiggins e-mailed investigators in Tennessee and claimed a North Webster cop abducted and killed a woman. He then told those investigators that he buried the woman in Kosciusko County.

But investigators say that did not happen.

They think Wiggins made up the story to get back at the officer who arrested him.

Wiggins is charged with false informing of murder.
