Lowell man allegedly tried to blind his ex with bleach
A Lowell man has pleaded not guilty to allegedly trying to pay someone to permanently blind his ex-wife with bleach during an annual family camping trip.
Francis Raney Jr., 46, was allegedly motivated to organize the attack due to his “deep hatred” for his ex-wife, according to report by The Lowell Sun.
Raney allegedly asked his friend, Timothy Elie, to carry out the deranged attack, however Elie went to the police instead. Elie reportedly told police that Raney said it would be a “bonus” if his ex died because of her injuries.
