The Palm Coast man accused of booby-trapping the front door of a home to electrocute his pregnant estranged wife was extradited to Flagler County Thursday.

Michael Scott Wilson, 32, is being held on $150,000 bond and is set to make his first appearance Thursday, according to Flagler deputies.

Wilson is charged with two counts of attempted aggravated battery on a pregnant person and one count of grand theft of a firearm. He was arrested Dec. 28 in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Deputies say the front door of the home on the 100 block of White Hall Drive was rigged over the Christmas holiday weekend. Wilson allegedly booby-trapped the door to attempt to physically harm his estranged wife.

The pregnant woman’s stepfather called deputies after finding "strange writing" that included the word "HI!" and two eyes drawn in what appeared to be lipstick on the back sliding glass door. The front door also appeared to be stuck.

The man and his wife said they had gone out to check on the home after their stepdaughter called to tell them about suspicious statements that Wilson had made.

Wilson and his estranged wife have a child together.
