Uptown Man Gets 30 Months For Hiding His Dead Wife

Seiler | CPD

An Uptown man has been handed a 30-month sentence for concealing his wife’s death last year. The woman, Tamara Wilson, 58, was found dead in the couple’s apartment in the 4400 block of North Clifton on December 10 after police were asked to check on her well-being.

According to a police report, Wilson was found naked, wrapped in a blue construction tarp on the floor of a locked bedroom. Seiler told police that he smelled something funny in the house, but didn’t realize that his wife had died.  Cops said Seiler was in possession of Wilson’s wedding ring, debit card, and identifications when they arrested him. His parole date has not been set.

Seiler previously served time in prison for DUI (three times); being a felon in possession of a firearm; and aggravated domestic battery.

Other cases we covered that have recently wrapped up:


• A convicted felon who was found in possession of a handgun when police went to question him about a double-homicide has received a nine-year sentence. Keyshawn Roberts pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a weapon in the deal that was approved by Judge William Gamboney.

Cops say they went to the 34-year-old’s house on February 26 to take him in for questioning and they performed a routine protective pat-down before transporting him. During the search, cops found a loaded handgun in his waistband, according to prosecutors. He has not been charged in any homicide. Roberts previously served time for narcotics (twice) and armed robbery. His parole date is set for August 26, 2022.


• Shawn Ghaziani, 25, received two-days time served after he pleaded guilty to unlawful use of a weapon. Judge Martin Moltz approved the deal. On March 8th, a security guard flagged down cops in the 1700 block of West Howard to report seeing Ghaziani brandish a handgun and then throw the weapon under a nearby parked car.
