Craiglist: Scams, Prostitution, and Murder?

Craigslist controversy is certainly nothing new. Beyond the already questionable content found on the site just about daily, there was that whole Craigslist killer ordeal that put Craigslist in the spotlight — not the kind of spotlight the site’s owners would want to be in, no doubt. Unfortunately for them and the victim involved in this case, they’re in the spotlight once again.

Timothy Smith, 26, from Woodstock, IL was charged with pimping his wife out to clients on Craigslist and fatally shooting one of her clients. The man was ordered to be held on a $900,000 bail after a hearing at McHenry County Circuit Court this past Monday.

Smith was charged with first-degree murder, aggravated discharge of a firearm, pandering, obstructing justice and pimping in connection with the murder of Kurt Milliman, 48, of Prairie Grove, IL this past Saturday.

The man’s wife, Kimberly, 28, is also being faced with charges: prostitution, obstructing justice and disorderly conduct. She’s currently being held on $50,000 bail.

According to the report, the two contacted local police and had requested that the man be removed from their residence. By the time police arrived on the scene at around 11 p.m., Milliman had a gunshot wound and was rushed to nearby entegra Woodstock Memorial Hospital, where he died from his injury.
