Man planned to feed woman’s child to a python, then blew up her home, feds say

Two men face up to 30 years in prison after they were accused of bombing a woman’s home in south Georgia, according to federal prosecutors.

A grand jury indicted Stephen Glosser, 37, and Caleb Kinsey, 34, on multiple charges including stalking and use of an explosive to commit another felony offense, according to a March 7 news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Georgia.

Glosser and Kinsey hatched a plan “to kill, intimidate, harass, or injure the victim,” then blew up her home in Richmond Hill on Jan. 13, 2023, investigators said.

The indictment also accused the duo of conspiring to harass the woman in several ways, including scalping her, shooting arrows through her front door, and letting a python loose in her home to eat her daughter, according to prosecutors.

Glosser and Kinsey spent a month following the woman, who had a prior relationship with one of them, Bryan County Sheriff Mark Crowe told WJCL.

Crowe said the woman and her daughter moved into the home one day before it was bombed, according to the station. They were not harmed, Bryan County Fire & Emergency Services Battalion Chief Sean Curry said at the time, WJCL reported.

Using internet searches, Glosser found the woman’s home while Kinsey helped build an explosive device using Tannerite, a brand of exploding targets used in shooting practice, prosecutors said.

If convicted, Glosser and Kinsey could spend 20 years in prison on the conspiracy charge, prosecutors said. The charge of using an explosive to commit a felony carries a 10-year penalty, according to authorities.

Neither of the men would be eligible for parole.

Bryan County is about a 30-mile drive east of downtown Savannah.
