KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. (TCD) -- Police have arrested a 52-year-old man after he allegedly assaulted his estranged wife and wrote a note about his plot to kill her.
According to the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office, on the morning of Sunday, Nov. 19, Upper Merion Township Police responded to the Walmart parking lot on North Gulph Road to a report of a man assaulting a female in a Nissan Rogue. Officers found the victim in the parking lot after she escaped the car. Her "soon-to-be ex-husband," Geoffrey Kay-Conway Sr., had allegedly attacked her and stabbed her in the leg numerous times.
Police found Kay-Conway in a nearby parking lot and took him into custody. The district attorney’s office said Kay-Conway had a metal pick and black zip ties shaped like handcuffs in his possession. Additionally, police reportedly recovered a black duffel bag from a truck filled with a pepperball gun, two magazines, and three piercing tools, including one that displayed the victim’s name. The duffel bag also reportedly contained a blindfold, duct tape, zip ties, knives, wire cutters, pliers, K-Y Jelly, a protection from abuse court order, and a note from Kay-Conway to his brother.
According to the district attorney’s office, the court order was regarding Kay-Conway’s stalking arrest on Oct. 31. Kay-Conway reportedly wrote on the bottom of the court order, "I Have 1.5 months to Kill that B--h. Could have Killed her 17 times if i wanted. What a week [sic] system."
The district attorney’s office said the note read, "Well by now Michelle and I are both dead. So there really is nothing to worry about. Listen tell everyone, there is nothing anybody could have done. Depending where she parks, some days are more ideal than others. If I cant do it on an ideal day, it will happen the weekend before Thanksgiving somewhere around town."
The note continued, "I just have to follow her Sat or Sun morning and grab her when she goes to her car going store 2 store, informing her if she screams, yells or tries to run that I will shoot her in the face. Not a day has gone by since she left that I didn’t think about killing that b--ch."
Further investigation revealed that Kay-Conway placed a tracking device in his estranged wife’s car. On the day of the assault, he allegedly followed the victim into the Walmart parking lot, where he later attacked and tried to kidnap her.
Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele announced Monday, Nov. 20, that his office charged Kay-Conway with attempted murder, attempted kidnapping, attempted rape, aggravated assault, stalking, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, possessing an instrument of crime, and other charges related to the assault.
Kay-Conway was arraigned Monday, Nov. 20, and denied bail. He remains held in the Montgomery County Correctional Facility and is set to appear in court again on Dec. 11.
