JANESVILLE, Wis. -- Court documents say a man accused of burning a woman's body at his property in Rock County asked his mother to blow out the jail wall with explosives so he could escape.

A criminal complaint says Nathan Middleton wrote his mother a letter and instructed her to look online for explosives to use in the escape. It says he also told his mother to switch the license plates on a rental car and leave it running outside the jail with a change of clothes.
